Red Hat Linux clustering/HA support

A number of clients ask about about HA solutions and clustering support for Connect:Direct with Red Hat Linux. I've had a search around, but only found the usual (old) docs on HA support with AIX/Solaris/HP-UX/Windows. I was trying to find something more specific regarding Red Hat HA/Clustering support. It's something a lot of customer have in use today, so why is it not on the list of supported HA environments?

It is still, in essence, a "do it yourself" job to configure CD in RH Clusters, with what appears to be limited support from IBM support. This request ties into the imminent IBM acquisition of Red Hat.

Can you please produce a how-to document, or better still, update the product documentation (which can be referenced) around the recommended, best-practice for setting up Connect:Direct as a HA solution on Red Hat Linux.

How will this idea be used?

A company using RHEL today, wants to set up C:D on RHEL in a highly available manner, in support of their critical business processing. They have access to RHEL and all the HA features (HA Cluster Suite, etc) and want instructions on how to set up C:D on RHEL in the best way, that is supportable by IBM.
