Hi, Could anyone tell me what the pros and cons of using 'internal' meta-data vs putting the meta-data on its own partition? I have read all the documentation (as far as I can see), but am not really sure which is more suitable. It mentions in the documentation that if you use meta-data internal, then you should 'shrink an existing filesystem first'. I'm not sure what this means. The main reason behind my question is whether one is easier to manage. For instance, if the primary crashes and needs a rebuild, the documentation notes that you should 'remove any meta-data' before you attempt to sync it back from the acting primary. Is this option available with 'internal' meta-data? We are running DRBD 0.7.4 with HA 1.2.3. The specs for the machines (if at all relevant) are as follows: Dell poweredge 1750 1 x Xeon 3.0 Ghz 1 GB memory LSI U320 SCSI 1 x 73GB HDD The machine will be used as a web server, and will also run mysql. Cheers for any help, Campbell
