I have been setting up a couple of servers with DRBD on a couple of the partitions on the each server drive. All is working great so far, and I have no problems. One question however. I am hoping to create an image of each hard disk as it stands at the moment, so that should the worst happen, I can recover the base install of that server quickly from the disk image. I will be using Clonezilla to make this image of the underlying devices, but I was wondering whether there is likely to be any issues with the saving and restoring the partitions that have DRBD devices on the top of them?

Many thanks
