You never should mount the low level device (in your example /dev/sda3) directly while the partition is under control of DRBD. Instead do # mount /dev/nb0 /yourdirectory (e.g. /mnt/nb0) > Sorry for the newbie questions.. I've looked through the docs and list > archives, but I haven't found any answers to these questions. Have a look on http://www.drbd.org and you will find a HOWTO, FAQ, articles etc. It could be better understandable for newbies, that's true. As a newbie you are the ideal person to find such parts in the documentation. Please collect them and write down. Only a few words of improvement can save other newbies hours in the future.
