Subject: DRD and LVM matters..
To: drbd-user at lists.linbit.com

Fellow drbd's,

I have just install two servers(both configured identically (with as the
only diffrence the hostnames and ipadresses) running RHEL 4 and wanted to
test Heart Beat with DRBD on them.

The heartbeat installation when well, only problem is the drdb installation.
I have already create a VG and LV's on both servers and don't have space
left on disk, only space i can get is from my Volgroup00.  I created a lv
call disk1 on both servers witch i wanted drdb to sync between them. Is this

p.s. i didn't create a filesystem on the lv i want drdb to handle yet, and
didn't mount yet.

filesystem: (both servers the same)
