Hi guys, I have configured a resource say drbd0 and it is up and everything is alright. Now, I stop DRBD and do: #drbdadm create-md drbd0 e-md drbd0 md_offset 0 al_offset 4096 bm_offset 36864 Found some data ==> This might destroy existing data! <== Do you want to proceed? [need to type 'yes' to confirm] yes Valid meta data seems to be in place. Do you really want to overwrite? [need to type 'yes' to confirm] Does this really destroy the data on the disk? I am working on a bash script to automate some of the day-to-day tasks like this and wanted to know if this really has a negative effect on my existing data. By the way, I am using external meta data. Thanks a lot!
