Indeed. I'm simply in the process of trying out drbd-0.7.11. But unfortunately, I still can't figure our why changes in the Primary doesn't get auto-replicated in the Secondary.

Unfortunately, up to now, I wasn't able to see auto-replication work on my test setup. Although connection/proc status after full-sync seems ok (results included in my last post), I still can't figure out why no data gets copied to the Secondary as my Primary gets populated with new data. This is far from what I saw in 0.6.13 way back. Actually, I went on to try 0.6.13 once more. But for some reason, I am now getting this error message: "Minor for /dev/nb0 'r0' not found in /proc/drbd" (which didn't exist when I first played with drbd) What else can I try/check to have this very basic feature of DRBD work on my setup? I haven’t integrated LVS/HA yet. But my nodes are ready as LVS/HA-DR already works on them. All I really need right now is to see DRBD do partial-sync with my devices as new data gets written. I already posted my config, and currently have "disable-io-hints" commented out. Best Regards, Vic -- Internal Virus Database is out-of-date. Checked by AVG Anti-Virus.
