Hello List, i'm trying to get drbd 0.7 working with SuSE 8.2 and the default 2.4 Kernel on an IBM eServer x346. The 'drbd' disk is an external sata raid device connected over scsi cable. When i run drbdsetup drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 disk /dev/sdb2 /dev/sdb1 0 or drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 disk /dev/sdb2 internal -1 It just hangs forever, i even can't abort it (with ctrl-c) or kill (kill -9 ) the process. The last message i get from drbd in the log says: Jun 20 11:18:28 suse82 kernel: drbd0: drbdsetup :drbd_md_sync_page_io(,488033528,READ) I tried a lot of versions form 0.7.0 to 0.7.11 but all show the same behaviour I got drbd runing fine with 0.6.13 on that machine. I like to use 0.7 because of its support for XFS filesystem and the process of synching seems to be more 'intelligent' than with 0.6 which does matter because our disks in production will be quite big (around 2 TB) Any idea why drbdsetup with 0.7 hangs ?? Have a nice day Jens
