Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.


I'm currently using DRBD over LVM and getting the same error message 
than http://lists.linbit.com/pipermail/drbd-user/2008-May/009287.html

Upgrading the kernel to 2.6.25 is not an option for now (running 
But even using the latest sources from git or v8.0.12 and using the 2 
new options to disable flushes, I get the "disk flush" failures .

As per the last message posted on this topic, is this kernel bug fixed 
by the workaround you provided ? Or is it, but not in the case of a 
DRBD-over-LVM setup (and then, only upgrading the kernel would help) ?

Thanks for your help!
