Hello All, Though I have posted this to centos hardware forum, I also post it here since it affects my cluster and drbd setup (the drbd complains that "drbd0: The peer's disk size is too small!", so the LV cannot become available, so the cluster services on node-1 do not start). I have 2.6.18-92.1.10.el5.centos.plus and fdisk (util-linux 2.13-pre7) My old 80GB disk failed and I had replaced. However the vendor replaced it with a different model. My old disk was WD800JB-00JJC0 but the new one is a WD800JB-22JJC0. Since I must have the new disk with the same partitions as the old one (apart from RAID-1 software, I also have installed DRBD mirrored with a second node), I use fdisk to partition it. But there start the problems: 1. BIOS reports C38308, H16, S255, Landing Zone 38307, Precomp 0 2. Kernel reports hda: 156301488 sectors (80026 MB) w/8192KiB Cache, CHS=65535/16/63, UDMA(100) 3. fdisk reports Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes 16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 155061 cylinders Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes and the disk turns up like: Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 208 104800+ fd Linux raid autodetect /dev/hda2 209 20554 10254384 fd Linux raid autodetect /dev/hda3 20555 24500 1988784 83 Linux /dev/hda4 24501 155061 65802744 83 Linux The result is that I cannot create the same layout on the disk as the old disk. The old disk was like that: Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 13 104391 fd Linux raid autodetect /dev/hda2 14 1288 10241437+ fd Linux raid autodetect /dev/hda3 1289 1543 2048287+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/hda4 1544 9729 65754045 83 Linux Any help? Why the is the new disk known in different ways by BIOS, kernel and fdisk? And how can I fix this?
