Hi everyone, I'm about to try out the latest 0.7.6 release. Upon reading the drbd.conf parameters and relating them with my 0.6.13, I noticed that the 0.7.6 requires a "meta-disk" specification. And this meta-disk *should-be* enough to hold on at least 128M/resource. Now my concern is this, I'm actually trying to implement DRBD on an embedded environment using only a 250M compact flash. My final target is to allocate at least 200M (or hopefully a few more) for the resource/data partition that will be mirrored on another identical embedded node. The rest will be consumed by my rootfs images (mostly Kernel, initrd, and squashfs images). The point is, I don't have enough *physical* space to use as a "128M-meta-disk". Is there some work around to this so that I can incorporate a more stable/feature-full DRBD release? BTW, after tweaking some more on my scripts, and placing /var/lib/drbd on a non-volatile fs, the 0.6.13 release currently seem to workout just fine on my thin environment. I'm still doing some more tests though. And its best if I can still make use of the DRBD 0.7.x on my project. TIA & Best regards - Vic
