Cool! An invalidate_remote was successful (although it took an hour and a half for a full resync of 80gig... only 100mb ethernet here though) > That will force it to resync everything once more.

No users yet; but soon - just in testing on separate hardware. Thanks for the tip - after an invalidate_remote, some more disk i/o and watching the logs for a few days, I see no abnormalities and my data is being 'mirrored' accross both hosts as expected. > > > > !DSPAM:429f44da155544621097632! > > >
