If I want to setup drbd on a blank disk, do I need to compute the size of the partition ( or does the drbd drive do this for me)? Say I have a 1 GB partition on moe's /dev/sda1, and something similar on larrys /dev/sdb1. When I initially format moe's drive, can I just mke2fs -j /dev/sda1 or do something like mke2fs -j /dev/sda1 <nnnn> where n = ( 1G - 128 M) / 4096 ( 1024^3 - 128*1024^2) / 4096 ( 1073741824 - 134217728) / 4096 229376 alternatively, If I have an existing file system, I can use resize2fs /dev/sda1 <nnnn> Where <nnnn> is computed the same as above? Also, Where do I find the initial size of the partition? df gives me one number ( in 1k blocks), and fdisk gives me another number. In fact, dump2efs give me a third number. here's my numbers for my real hdisk ( not the example I gave above): df -> 15480832 ( 1K blocks) => 15480832 fdisk -> 15727635 => 15727635 dumpe2fs -> 3931908 ( 4k blocks) => 15727632 What is the correct way to determine these numbers? Thanks b²
