A small comment on your upgrade process... > Then I rebooted the other machine into 2.6.15 so I could build its new > modules. While I was waiting for that, I started transferring some data You do not need to reboot a machine to build the drbd modules for a new kernel. First install your new kernel and then build drbd as shown below: cd /usr/src tar -xzf /path/to/drbd/source/drbd-0.7.17.tar.gz cd drbd-0.7.17 make rpm KDIR=/usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-34.EL-x86_64 make rpm KDIR=/usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-34.EL-smp-x86_64 Adjust kernel path as needed. You can then stop heartbeat and drbd, install the new rpms: rpm -Fvh --force dist/RPMS/x86_64/drbd-0.7.17-1.x86_64.rpm rpm -Fvh --force dist/RPMS/x86_64/drbd-debuginfo-0.7.14-1.x86_64.rpm NOTE: --force only needed if using same drbd version but only upgrading kernel. Now install the kernel modules rpm -ivh dist/RPMS/x86_64/drbd-km*.rpm Then reboot and your machine will come up ready. Diego
