in the http://wiki.linux-ha.org/DRBD_2fQuickStart07 I founded:
"Currently DRBD meta-data reserves 128MB, regardless of actual physical data
storage. This allows for a maximum storage size of a single DRBD device of
approximatly 4TB. "

I need 5 drbd devices. For the first and second no problem.
For the other devices I received:
Starting DRBD resources:    [ d0 d1 d2 ioctl(,SET_DISK_CONFIG,) failed: Invalid
Meta device too small.

cmd /sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd3 disk /dev/hda10 /dev/hda16 3 --on-io-error=detach

where: hda10 is 10Gb and hda16 is 360Mb and drbd version is 0.7.10 for kernel
2.4.27-2-386 (debian)

Where is the problem?
Thanks in advance.
