QFS allows for the configuration of backup metadata servers, so that if
the main one fail the filesystem can fail-over to the backup.

That sounds good. What's the coherency arrangement between them? This
isn't a rhetorical question!

Actually is there any good technical info (further than the stuff
that's easily available at on QFS? I admit to be being
too lazy to search hard, sorry!

The metadata and catalog should be on devices accessible to all
potential metadata servers through a SAN. If you're using SCSI you're
limited to a single metadata server.
