You are absolutly right, the marvel card doesn't work with drbd. I
didn't have time to try 2.6.17 yet but I just disabled the yukon nic
and am now running drbd over a second Intel e1000 GBit nic. And so far
no errors. Even after the tests I described in my other mail to Lars.

I am right now copying 20GB over the NFS server, disconnected the
network cable  while copying to simulate a failure, reconnected it
after 1min and secondary started to sync right away and primary never
stoped disk activity for a second.

Many thanks for this hint. I will try 2.6.17 when I have time and keep
you all updated if it improved the situation with the marvel nic.

best regards,
