Hi there... Following Scenario: One Cluster/two Nodes, heartbeat up and running, 1.2 TB scsi attached on each node, sync between the scsi/nodes with rsync+acl-patch. Running for years very stable...but now it time for a change, due perfomance issues of rsync. I want to move the cluster to drbd. My idea is two establish drbd on the inactive node, setup the device, filesystem and force it as primary and sync the data one final time, without changing the data...for example samba stopped. after this step is successful completed, I want to change the former primary node to drbd too, forcing it as secondary and wait that all data is synced between the nodes. as final step I want to change the heartbeat setup to work with drbd and start over. So my question is, is it possible to setup drbd on a single node, mkfs, put data on it and in a last final step establish the second one??? Thanks! cu Joh.Paechnatz
