Thanks for the reply. I decided to create a seperate partition for the metadata Like the second link below suggests. ----- Original Message ----- From: Maxim Doucet <maxim at alamaison.fr> To: drbd-user at lists.linbit.com Sent: Wednesday, July 4, 2007 3:58:30 AM GMT-0800 Subject: Re: [DRBD-user] Stand alone James Wilson a écrit : > I finally figured this one out.

While dealing with internal or "on-partition" metadata, I have found these links : * http://lists.linbit.com/pipermail/drbd-user/2007-January/006194.html : Leroy van Logchem explains the benefits of having a separate meta-disk, especially in case of trouble * http://billboebel.typepad.com/blog/2006/11/data_mirroring_.html : the author, Bill Boebel, recommends to use a separate meta-disk * http://lists.linbit.com/pipermail/drbd-dev/2006-January/000328.html : a Philipp Reisner's reminder about "internal vs external meta data" and performances Perhaps it can be helpful. In all cases I think it's worth sharing information on it. -- Maxim Doucet - www.alamaison.fr sys admin @ la maison _______________________________________________ drbd-user mailing list drbd-user at lists.linbit.com http://lists.linbit.com/mailman/listinfo/drbd-user
