Hi There, I am trying to setup a failover server with lvm on drbd... and am trying to setup the following: fs lv vg pv drbd drive This is so i can create lv partitions on server1 and have them automatically mirrored to server2 without changing setup (ie adding each lv to the drdb.conf file). In my test environment, I have server1 and server2, both with /dev/sdb1 as the meta data drive and /dev/sdb2 as a Linux LV partition, then both servers have "disk = /dev/sdb2" set in the drbd.conf file. Then try to do the following with the following result (can anyone help me here please?): server1:/# pvcreate /dev/drbd0 Physical volume "/dev/drbd0" successfully created server1:/# pvdisplay Found duplicate PV 947ghY5ndShGUC7jE8kUuhq9xEH6nvIB: using /dev/sdb2 not /dev/drbd0 Found duplicate PV 947ghY5ndShGUC7jE8kUuhq9xEH6nvIB: using /dev/sdb2 not /dev/drbd0 --- NEW Physical volume --- PV Name /dev/drbd0 VG Name PV Size 870.52 MB Allocatable NO PE Size (KByte) 0 Total PE 0 Free PE 0 Allocated PE 0 PV UUID 947ghY-5ndS-hGUC-7jE8-kUuh-q9xE-H6nvIB Thanks Simon
