Hi, We have a number of secondary schools which use a RHEL3 pair of servers as their internet cache. Unfortunately the initial disk allocation has proved to be too small in the / partition. Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sda3 10394720 3245996 6620852 33% / /dev/sda1 198321 25640 162442 14% /boot none 1282636 0 1282636 0% /dev/shm /dev/drbd0 62669424 55076 59430904 1% /data I recently used gparted to resize the disks. This all seemed to work fine initially, but now we get errors in /var/log/messages saying the OS is trying to write off the end of the device. I have : On the standby server #drbdadm disconnect all #mke2fs /dev/sda2 - reports correct disk allocation #drbdadm connect all - do same on primary node #drbdadm invalidate all Secondary server then 'syncs' Then failover the servers and re-run on the other standby server. After a day of running, fsck will report filesystem size (according to superblock) is xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Physical size of device is yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy quit <y> I am assuming drbd holds information about partition size differently to the OS. I tried: # drbdadm resize all On both servers but I still get the same error.
