Hello all!

I'm using two Supermicro servers with two SATA disks in RAID-1 (ICH5R, 
Adaptec's aarich driver) under Red Hat based OS with custom kernel 
(2.4.25 based, minimum changes). DRBD v. 0.7.10 compiles and installs 
OK, but when I start it I get the following error:

[root at mcbc1 root]# /etc/init.d/drbd start
Starting DRBD resources:    [ d0 ioctl(,SET_DISK_CONFIG,) failed: 
Operation not permitted

cmd /sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 disk /dev/sda6 internal -1 
--on-io-error=detach failed!

dmesg output:

drbd: initialised. Version: 0.7.10 (api:77/proto:74)
drbd: SVN Revision: 1743 build by root at mcbc1, 2005-04-04 13:43:08
drbd: registered as block device major 147


resource r0 {
     protocol C;
     incon-degr-cmd "echo '!DRBD! pri on incon-degr' | wall ; sleep 60 ; 
halt -f";

     startup {
         degr-wfc-timeout 120;   # 2 minutes.

     disk {
         on-io-error   detach;

     syncer {
         rate 10M;
         group 1;
         al-extents 257;

     on mcbc1 {
         device    /dev/drbd0;
         disk      /dev/sda6;
         meta-disk internal;

     on mcbc2 {
         device    /dev/drbd0;
         disk      /dev/sda6;
         meta-disk internal;

Please, tell me, what I'm doing wrong?
