Hello, We have a cluster of two nodes with Debian Sarge 3.1 , DRBD 0.7.10-4 (debian packages), and Linux Kernel 2.6.8-2-686. The primary node died due to a hard drive failure, and the second node becomes primary, no problem. I want to reinstall the first node with newer packages (Debian Etch 4.0 , DRBD 0.7.21-4 (debian packages), linux kernel 2.6.18-4-686) and I wonder if 2 differents versions of DRBD 0.7 are compatible or not ? I saw in the archives that DRBD 0.8 and DRBD 0.7 are not compatibles, but I found nothing in the user's guide about compatibility between 2 versions of DRBD 0.7. Besides, we recently had these errors with kernel 2.6.8-2 and need to reboot : "kernel: PREEMPT SMP ..... kernel: <6>note: nfsd exited with preempt_count 1" I think these errors are due to a kernel problem with NFS server, and I wish to take advantage of the reinstallation of the died node in order to have a newer version of the Linux Kernel and DRBD. Can I install Etch in my server or should I stay with Sarge ? Thanks for your replies, Regards, Christophe Gras
