Yeah , I still don't have output from /etc/init.d/drbd start .......All it says is "Starting DRBD resource : " .....and that's it . /etc/init.d/drbd start ( and insmod drbd ) creates /dev/nbd/0 ...... but when I try mkfs -t ext3 /dev/nbd/0 , I get : Device size reported to be zero . Invalid partition specified , or partition table wasn't reread after running fdisk , due to a modified partition being busy and in use . You may need to reboot to re-read your partition table .
