What can I do? I don't quite understand your question, so I'll take a guess. maybe you configured drbd0 on top of sda3 using internal meta data? fdisk -s /dev/sda3 21567231 fdisk -s /dev/drbd0 21436159 drbd size is 128 MB smaller than sda3 size. well, you configured drbd to use internal meta data. that means, as documented in bold letter, that the last 128MB of the lower level device are reserved for drbds meta data. so the storage size exported to our users is obviously 128MB smaller. does this answer your question? No, the drbd device is smaller than physical because the replicated computer has smaller drives, so, how can I remove that information? -- : Lars Ellenberg Tel +43-1-8178292-0 : : LINBIT Information Technologies GmbH Fax +43-1-8178292-82 : : Schoenbrunner Str. 244, A-1120 Vienna/Europe http://www.linbit.com: __ please use the "List-Reply" function of your email client. _______________________________________________ drbd-user mailing list drbd-user at lists.linbit.com http://lists.linbit.com/mailman/listinfo/drbd-user
