This way the DRBD will always know which is the *best* DRBD to mirror from. You can surpass this behaviour by using a cluster manager (like Heartbeat), or doing it manually using drbdadm/drbdsetup. -- Nuno Tavares http://nthq.cjb.net/ _________________________________________________________________ STOP MORE SPAM with the new MSN 8 and get 2 months FREE* http://join.msn.com/?page=features/junkmail
