drbd-0.7.19 under kernel 2.6.17-rc4 is running on a primary node standalone. There are 8 resources in the same group. fsck.ext3 -fv is being run simultaneously on all of them. Each of the drbd devices are running on an lv, which all belong to a single pv. The actual "disk" is a hardware RAID connected via SCSI (i.e., the mpt driver). Five of the fsck finished their tasks successfully and reported no problems. The remaining three got "stuck". There was no activity either on the physical RAID itself or listed in top. They were just listed as "D," uninterruptible sleep. Two of the fscks were at the end, giving the final summary information--no problems---for their respective filesystems and were stuck at that point. The last one was stuck in the first pass. Attempts to kill them failed; even kill -9 and attempting to shutdown were ignored. I rebooted manually and ran the three stuck ones again without a hitch. -- Maurice Volaski, mvolaski at aecom.yu.edu Computing Support, Rose F.
