Get the latest version of DRBD and the bug you describe has been fixed.
* DRBD no longer shrinks an consistent device if it gets connected to
an smaller peer or attached to a smaller disk.
* There was a bug related to the degr-wcf-timeout config option, it was
never used in recent DRBD releases. Fixed.
******* Made DRBD work with Neil Brown's patch, that serializes recusive
ralls to generic_make_request(). FC4 included that patch in its
later kernels. *******
* Minor fixes to drbdadm
* Compiles now also with Linux-2.6.16-rc1
* Updates to documentation and example config file to make it more
clear that we talk about byte/second and not bit/second.

Subject: [DRBD-user] DRBD and Fedora
I am new to DRBD and after some experimenting...followed by reading.. I
now know DRBD hangs with the latest Fedora Core 4 kernel
(2.6.15-1.1833_FC4). I can't do a simple mkfs. Apparently this is due to
some kernel patch that I can remove. I rather not change distributions
due to various reasons. I would like to see a patch to DRBD that solves
this, or a patch to the FC kernel that doesn't require me recompiling a
new kernel every time a new kernel is released. Thank you for the
development efforts for this project.
So, I am thinking of two computers with DRBD and heartbeat for NFS/LDAP,
limiting the computers to the last kernel that still works with DRBD.
Can I do LVM2 -> DRBD -> RAID -> FS or DRBD -> RAID -> LVM2
I want a expandable robust filesystem...is DRBD up to the task?
