Dear Stefan, Thanks for the confirmation. Step 1 is for my metadata partition. Cause if not done that sometime it'll give me error when doing step 2. even though it's a empty partition. O_o; Yes. I am using HA for my drbd servers. ^__^ will yum it down. Will do testing on test PCs for this before I do it on the actual servers. Thank you!!!!!
