Hi Seki Lau, > So, I think it may be my NIC problem. I would like to ask if any one > of you are using NIC with chip realtex 8169. If your machine is using > this chip, have you try to perform a full syn action without > disconnect/reconnection? Or, does the file copy action go smooth when > coping a large size (over Gbytes) files? I had very bad experience with the realtec 8169. I didn't try it with drbd, but I had a lot of troubles doing normal networking with this cards (especially during transfers of a lot of files). I don't know if the cause is the driver in the latest kernel, or if the hardware is crap. I tried a lot of these cards in different hosts, with different switches and with kernel 2.6.7, 2.6.8 and 2.6.9 (FC2 version). Some of them didn't know their MAC-adresse after some reboots (very strange!). cheers andi
