Hello all,

I'm trying to get drbd up and going.  I had it working with a single 
partition, but decided to make 4 partitions instead, so I deleted the 
original partition and made 4 to replace it on each machine.

The problem now is that I can only get the first couple to work, since 
there is only drbd0 and drbd1 in /dev after I modprobe drbd.  How do I 
get drbd2 and drbd3 created too?  I tried creating them by hand with 
mknod, but then drbdadm primary all froze the remote machine until the 
next day, so I haven't tried that again...
