Dear All, We have been running drbd on several systems for over a year but today I can't get it to go on a couple of test systems which are just a pair of old PCs. I type drbdsetup /dev/nb0 disk /dev/hda5 and get ioctl() failed: Permission denied No further Information available. I can't find anything about this other than some people making jokes on the mailing list about it. Presumably they know what is wrong. I am running the same kernel on these systems as I run on the production systems (2.4.25). I have NFS mounted the kernel sources on these test machines so I know I am using the same configuration. The .config files are there. I have built and tested drbd version 0.6.1 through to 0.6.9 (missing a couple out on the way) but they all do the same thing. As I do this it is happily running on other machines although they are proper servers with SCSI interfaces. I can't believe drbd requires SCSI? The drbd.conf file is about as basic as it gets. Just one partition mirrored to the other server. I can't think what more to say. Oh yes, I am logged in as root, I have deleted nb0 and recreated it. I have mounted the disk as /dev/hda5 and it still doesn't work. Does anyone know how to fix this please? Best wishes.... Colin
