Hello Everyone, 

 I¹m about to setup two physical xen server called xen0 & and xen1, both of
this servers will be accessing there vm from two dell 2850 with raid 5 ultra
320 drives on each server. I was wondering what do you guys think would be
the best way to be able to take lvm snapshot of each vm separately and
replication all physical partitions. This are the two Ideas that came up
with lvm first  So I can add more physical drive at anytime and then have
drdb replicate the lv for each vm I create. I believe this might be the
wrong way because I might have 10 vms which mean I will have 10 drbd
replication running. The next Idea is to have drbd on top lvm and another
lvm on top drdb, this should allow to be able to take snapshot of the
individual vm and replicate the all the partition without having drbd for
each vm.

Thank You,
