Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Is there anything that I need to add to the conf file to make sure drbd syncs? I currently have to issue the command drbdadm invalidate-remote resource before the data will copy over is there something I can do to have this done automatically? Here is my conf file.

resource summit {
  protocol C;
  startup {
    wfc-timeout         0;  ## Infinite!
    degr-wfc-timeout   60;  ## 2 minutes.
  disk {
    on-io-error detach;
  net {
    # timeout           60;
    # connect-int       10;
    # ping-int          10;
    # max-buffers     2048;
    # max-epoch-size  2048;
  syncer {
    rate   120M;
    al-extents 257;
