You need to either shrink the Filesystem within LVM to make space for the 
Metadata, or create another LV to accommodate it (external metadata). I 
would adwise to use the latter approach.
Use a different Port number for each resource

[DRBD-user] How to convert existing lvm2 filesystem to use drbd






Hi Listers,
We currently have one guest with an existing VG ( vgora_dbms ) with 2 LV?s 
( lvdbms01 and lvdbms02 ) and some free space.  Before I create another 
guest with identical VG attributes, I would like to convert the current VG 
to be used and controlled by drbd.
My listing of vgdisplay  and /etc/drbd.conf follows:
 
# vgdisplay -v vgora_dbms
    Using volume group(s) on command line
    Finding volume group "vgora_dbms"

    disk   /dev/vgora_dbms/lvdbms01;
    meta-disk internal;
    on lnocsrq1 {
       address 172.27.100.211:7788;
    }
    on lnocsrq2 {
       address 172.27.100.212:7788;
    }
}
resource dbms02 {
    device /dev/drbd02;
    disk   /dev/vgora_dbms/lvdbms02;
    meta-disk internal;
    on lnocsrq1 {
       address 172.27.100.211:7788;
    }
    on lnocsrq2 {
       address 172.27.100.212:7788;
    }
}
 
When I run ?drbdadm -c /etc/drbd.conf  create-md all ?  I get the 
following error:
 
/etc/drbd.conf:23: conflicting use of IP '172.27.100.211:7788' ...
/etc/drbd.conf:12: IP '172.27.100.211:7788' first used here.
 
Any ideas on how to :
1.      convert an existing lvm2 filesystem to use drbd ?
2.      create several resources in /etc/drbd.conf
 
TIA
Bernie Wu
