I suppose the 11.1 is for the opensuse. We have very good experiences with Sles11 SP1 and DRBD 8.3.11 (older versions as well). Personally I would not use Ubuntu on a server at all - its main focus is on workstations. For servers I use SLES (at work) or Debian (in private). RHEL/CentOS are fine as well.

Probably. However, while SuSE has always been buggy, Ubuntu isn't that much better AFAICT. You've heard all the "OMG Unity is horrible!!1!" traffic on various mailing lists, right? That's more important for orkstations than servers, but it shows they're out of touch with users' wants. I'd go for CentOS or Gentoo myself. > Will drbd 8.3.11 understand the on-disk format of a previous 188.8.131.52 > installation?

The main thing you'll have to do is account for all the differences between the old distro and the new distro in terms of running programs and config file differences. -- Matt G / Dances With Crows The Crow202 Blog: http://crow202.org/wordpress/ There is no Darkness in Eternity/But only Light too dim for us to see _______________________________________________ drbd-user mailing list drbd-user at lists.linbit.com http://lists.linbit.com/mailman/listinfo/drbd-user -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
