Hi, I've searched the mailing list and found references to this situation before. The solution then was to not use DRBD on a single machine between two hard drives and instead use raid 1 (mirroring). The reason why I would really like to use DRBD instead of raid is because one of the disks is an external hard drive. The external hard drive is connected via usb and can be removed (disconnected) during operation. The other disk is a local disk which I want to mirror the external drive to. In my view DRBD handles the disk disconnection (node failure) the way I want and would be superior compared to using raid. Is it possible use DRBD in this situation or should I try with a RAID solution instead? // Per
