I haven't "tried" it, I currently run it in production on one cluster on RHEL3 
(and previously have done so on RHEL 2.1 AS).

The documentation for RHCS covers sufficiently the requirements for running 
any service under RHCS (unfortunately the init script in the RH openldap 
packages doesn't use the right exit codes for best operation with RHCS ... 
and that was one of the original reasons I built my own packages - see 
http://staff.telkomsa.net/packages/ ).

If you have *specific* questions, please ask, but this isn't the right forum 
to discuss the use of clustering middleware.
