Yea just simply using asm wasnt enough for me to link 2 machines. I had to set up Goodsync to sync the clusterid file. Has work perfectly since, and absolutely will not without. "Create a new character" every time without the syncing program.
You need Goodsync if the machines are in separate locations but if they are on the same network a simple network share will work as well. I have also heard reports that setting up a VPN between the servers and doing a network share that way works as well. The key is the cluster directory needs to be the same folder on both machines.
