-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA256 Hi Keith, We actually did a similar setup using NFS. The only difference was we dedicated both DRBD servers to do nothing else but DRBD and NFS. We then use many (currently 8) front end servers that attach to the NFS share. This HOWTO was extremely helpful to me: http://www.howtoforge.com/high_availability_nfs_drbd_heartbeat Hope this helps.
