Dear Sirs, I would like you to ask some information about drbd: I want to use drbd to sync a filesystem in a production server without format it of course! Can i do: on local server 1) umount /myfilesystem 2) drbdsetup /dev/nb0 disk /dev/myfilesystemdevice 3) drbdsetup /dev/nb0 net localaddress remoteaddress C 4) drbdsetup /dev/nb0 primary 5) drbdsetup /dev/nb0 syncer -max 100000 6) mount /dev/nb0 /myfilesystem on remote server 1) drbdsetup /dev/nb0 disk /dev/myreplicatedfilesystemdevice 2) drdbsetup /dev/nb0 net localaddress remoteaddress c After all, can i unmount /dev/nb0 and remount /dev/myfilesystem ? And wath's happen if i setup again drbd ? will i need a full sync or can i get corrupted data? how does the primary server work to maintain data relating to the incremental copy and to obtain a quick sync? if the secondary is down, and even the primary goes down what will happen to these data ? will i need a full sync?
