The driver for this card in > 2.6.16 is not good enough. I could not run drbd over this card either. 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, Andreas
