( If we had it, its name would be --shoot-myself-into-the-foot ) The trick to get a QuickSync is to 1) make both sides secondary 2) disconnect / powercycle / change ipadresses etc... 3) let them connect again. In other words: You will get a FullSync if a primary node "disappears" unexpectedly. -Philipp -- : Dipl-Ing Philipp Reisner Tel +43-1-8178292-50 : : LINBIT Information Technologies GmbH Fax +43-1-8178292-82 : : Schönbrunnerstr 244, 1120 Vienna, Austria http://www.linbit.com :
