Do I have to upgrade the kernel on both drbd1 and drbd2 or can I just upgrade the one that is giving kernel oops's (drbd2) ? They are both running the same kernel right now (rh 2.4.20-19.9) and also both running drbd 0.6.12 I was hoping I can get away with upgrading the kernel on drbd2 and recompiling drbd, because I'd hate to bring down the primary file server for a kernel reboot, and even worse, if the kernel doesn't boot. SO as of now I am upgrading drbd2 (the server in question) until I get an answer from you.. Thank you for all your help..
