Great to hear that such a feature will be implemented in DRBD. Yes, basically what I do is transferring everything during off hours. Over a compressed VPN link. It's also worth to do (before the initial sync): dd if=/dev/zero of=/bigfile rm -f /bigfile to zero-out any free areas - so that the VPN compression can squeeze some extra bytes as DRBD synchronizes "free area". -- Tomasz Chmielewski http://wpkg.org
