I installed drbd-8.0pre3 on two machines, I used following howtos:


my setup:
  on mw-test2.i-dis.net {
     device     /dev/drbd0;
     disk       /dev/sdb2;
     meta-disk  /dev/sdb1[0];

   on mw-test3.i-dis.net {
     device    /dev/drbd0;
     disk      /dev/sdb2;
     meta-disk  /dev/sdb1[0];
#    meta-disk internal;

after I startup drbd with /etc/rc.d/init.d/drbd I do this on the primary:

[root at mw-test2 ~]#  drbdadm -- --do-what-I-say primary all
--do-what-I-say was renamed to --overwrite-data-of-peer, since that is
less ambiguous.
Only do it if you really know what you are doing. DRBD is going to save
this fact to its metadata, and it will really overwrite the peer's copy
of data with the local copy.
Command 'drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 primary --do-what-I-say' terminated with 
exit code 20
drbdsetup exited with code 20

when I do cat /proc/drbd
version: 8.0pre3 (api:82/proto:80)
SVN Revision: 2169 build by root at mw-test2.i-dis.net, 2006-07-10 21:50:54
  0: cs:Unconfigured

on both machines

I did format /dev/sdb2 with ext3 on first machine.

I dont know why nothing is syncing ? Im abit confused about diferent 
howtos on the net...

please help :-)
