We're getting ready to test a drbd + nfs system in production and i started looking into iscsi. Thought of something that i couldn't find an answer to on google, maybe i'm not looking hard enough (not on the first 5 results) Why not have 2 storage systems exporting iscsi and simply software md raid the exports on a target system? This would take out complexity of drbd and heartbeat entirely, no? Only thing i can think against this setup is it pushes lots of bandwidth to both storage servers, but assuming that network is already in place this should not be a barrier. And yes, it would require an additional 1gb nic on the target server (1 from each storage system) I'm definitely not going with this setup because drbd works great, but still looking for anything you can say about why my scenario would not be a good idea. -- Best Regards, Artur eBoundHost http://www.eboundhost.com
