Hi, I wanted to make sure I understand the procedure correctly before forging ahead. 1) I install my OS (debian) and create partitions to be mirrored, but I do not format them with a filesystem. 2) I install drbd. 3) I edit drbd.conf and set the size of each mirrored partition to be 132M smaller than the actual size of the partition. This is larger than the required 128M, but just to be sure. 4) I start drbd. 5) I create a filesystem on the drbd devices with a command that looks something like this: mkfs.ext3 /dev/drbd0 I wanted to be sure that 3) was the correct way to leave space at the end of the partition on a new filesystem. The quick-start guide talks about shrinking an existing filesystem, but I think that it doesn't apply here. Is that correct? Thanks, Tom
