Hi, I'm trying to make a filesystem on top of a drbd device, but the mkfs process never finish. Its the same with mkreiserfs and mkfs.xfs. I tried to make a 10G drbd device and it works, but its not working with devices larger than 25G. The last mkreiserfs message is: "ATTENTION: YOU SHOULD REBOOT AFTER FDISK! ALL DATA WILL BE LOST ON '/dev/drbd0'! Continue (y/n):y Initializing journal - 0%....20%....40%....60%....80%....100% " Its possible to mount the faulty created filesystem, but fsck.reiserfs suggests to run --rebuild-tree. --rebuild-tree also results in an "uninterruptible sleep" process. Drbd 0.7 don't make a difference. Creating a filesystem directly on the raid without drbd works fine. specs: OS: Ubuntu Feisty Server Kernel: 2.6.22-14-server #1 SMP Sun Oct 14 22:09:15 GMT 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux DRBD: version: 8.0.3 (api:86/proto:86), SVN Revision: 2881 build by root at host, 2007-11-14 14:11:17 CPU: 1x Xeon 5160 Board: S5000XVN RAM: 4G RAID: Areca ARC-1260 16-Port PCI-Express to SATA RAID Controller with 6x250G Seagate Raid 10, 4k Thanks you for your help!
