The secondary switches primary (as expected) and as soon as I start drbd on the rebooted box, the primary box goes into a standalone state and I have to abort the drbd start up on the secondary or it will sit there indefinitely. Now seeing as the file system is mounted as read only on the online (now primary) box, and the other one is rebooting, I don't see how the data is getting changed on both boxes at the same time. The only thing I keep coming back to is XFS is changing it's internal data on reboot and this makes drbd think that the partitions contents have changed, causing the split brain. I haven't been able to verify this though. David
