Thanks, But I have found the following howto http://linuxha.trick.ca/DRBD_2fHowTo_2fInstall I did it slight different from this how to, I will try to compile it again and if it then still isn't working I will be back with the Console output. Before I start drbd do I need to load the module manually (insmod drbd)?? I have read that somebody had to do this before starting drbd, I have tested drbd 0.6.xx on a suse 9 Linux machine there it was not needed. Do you now what I need to change in the drbd/linux/drbd_config.h?? I guess that I will take a look at it tomorrow.
