I'am using /etc/modprobe.conf to specify the number of drbd devices: # grep drbd /etc/modprobe.conf options drbd minor_count=3 The manpage explains: minor-count count count may be a number from 1 to 255. Use minor-count if you want to define more resources later without reloading the DRBD kernel module. Per default the module loads with exactly as many devices as configured in this file. Builtin default for module is 2, and 8 for monolithic kernel. For monolithic kernel minor-count is ignored, and you have to pass a kernel boot parameter drbd.minor_count=count to change the default. --Leroy
