I know partprobe - but does it work on a > mounted partition? For all I know it should work with a mounted partition as well. If the partition were not mounted or otherwise used, you wouldn't need partprobe. And I assume "mounted" in this context means "used as drbd storage device". I also assume that by RAID you mean some hardware RAID, because partitioning an MD RAID wouldn't make much sense. Like with all these things it's a very good idea to first test it on a test system. Ideally identical machines, but if not available at least some VM (we use qemu for that and though its pretty slow, its enough for such tests). Life gets so much more relaxed, if you don't have to experiment around with your production machines :) Regards, Stefan -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
