This is based on SLES9 SP1 using SuSE's kernels (2.6.5-*.*) and DRDB 0.7.10. Everything seems fine thus far although it hasn't been fully exercised to 'production' levels yet. One feature to beware of with this SLES9 setup is that xfs_freeze should NOT be invoked prior to taking snapshots, lvcreate handles the consistency issues now apparently. -- John P.
