It seems that when you use meta-disk you have to use index and in that case you need at least 256MB???? Initially I used meta-disk /dev/cciss/c0d0p4; but I got a syntax error about expected [ instead of ; so I assumed that it is mandatory to use the index.... but probably it is not the case? Anyway I configured flexible-meta-disk instead of meta-disk flexible-meta-disk /dev/cciss/c0d0p4; instead of meta-disk /dev/cciss/c0d0p4; And now I 'm able to run (after recreating meta device): [root at virtfed ~]# drbdadm up r0 [root at virtfed ~]# echo $? 0 [root at virtfed ~]# cat /proc/drbd version: 8.3.2 (api:88/proto:86-90) GIT-hash: dd7985327f146f33b86d4bff5ca8c94234ce840e build by root at virtfed.domainname.com, 2009-07-16 11:03:37 0: cs:WFConnection ro:Secondary/Unknown ds:Inconsistent/DUnknown C r---- ns:0 nr:0 dw:0 dr:0 al:0 bm:0 lo:0 pe:0 ua:0 ap:0 ep:1 wo:b oos:54658688
