Lars, Appreciate the reply. I realized I should not have formatted my new raided drives before adding them to drbd. Anyhow, as I mentioned in my post, I did do a full resync afterwords (it was automatic). So now my drbd mirror is functioning well with 450G size on 750G capacity physical disks. The device is named drbd0. Should I now call drbdadm resize on both machines and then do resize_reiserfs drbd0 on both machines? When doing filesystem resize do I still have to specify a size 128M less than the disk capacity? Manjo
