You use /dev/drbd0 to access you data, /dev/md0 is the underlying device. For mkfs, mount... you use the drbd device. > other than that..

What about the module? Furthermore you may have to execute 'drbdadm primary all' after reboot on your primary node - or use heartbeat. > On the other system it won't let me format the dev/drbd0 saying "could not > open /dev/drbd0 Read only filesystem" I guess that's the secondary node?
