Hi Charles,

It looks good to me. I use a similar setup in production and it works 
okay-ish. I have made some more modifications though:
- I use another nic for exporting NFS
- I use VIPs on both servers and on the clients I use a RR A record for 
the mount so I have some simple form of load balancing
