Hi, Maybe I need to clarify my question a little more: My question is whether it is possible to do an INITIAL sync without the 'do-what-i-say' command. When I have 2 NEW machines and I have to install and CONFIGURE drbd on them, I run the 'do-what-i-say' command to get them in sync for the FIRST TIME. After that everything works fine with drbddisk and hearbeat doing the needful. I want to know whether there is a more elegent method to get them in sync for the first time rather than forcefully pushing data from one node to the other? Regards, Varun.
