direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.


drbd8-utils and drbd8-module-source packages are available in Debian lenny. 
You'll need to build the kernel module yourself (2 shell commands), as 
outlined in my blog post on the subject (just need to substitute the DRBD 8 
package names here): 

CentOS 5, Xen, Heartbeat 2.1.2 works straight out of the box (CentOS extras 
includes binary DRBD 8.0.6 at this point). 

OpenSUSE 10.3 should work without hassle too (has DRBD 8.0.4, I think).

Enterprise distro support for DRBD (on RHEL 5, SLES 10) works like a charm 
with Xen too, for our support customers -- but it seems like I mention that 
too often on this list lately. :-)

Happy testing!
