Not sure if you already went through this, but it may help you find out where the problem is. drbdadm -d adjust RESOURCE_NAME This will show you what is needed to actually get drbd ready to work according to your drbd.conf. [root at sauron /]# drbdadm -d adjust export /sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 disk /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb3 0 --on-io-error=detach /sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 syncer --rate=60M --group=1 --al-extents=257 /sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 net 10.0.0.21:7789 10.0.0.22:7789 C From the sample above you can then try running each one of the commands by hand to try to figure out which is failing. /sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 disk /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb3 0 --on-io-error=detach /sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 syncer --rate=60M --group=1 --al-extents=257 /sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 net 10.0.0.21:7789 10.0.0.22:7789 C HTH, Diego Martin Fick wrote: > I am attempting to setup drbd on debian unstable, it > reports version .8pre2.
