Hi guys, I'm planning a 2 node cluster running GFS2 ontop of DRBD using Master-Master Unfortunately, I don't have both nodes available at the same time, so I'd like to know if it's safe to do the following: Install DRBD on node 1, and mount GFS2 with lockproto=lock_nolock as that will skip the cluster.conf (because the other node isn't available yet). Then I'll populate the partition. When node2 becomes available, can I just remount the partition properly (as a cluster), and start DRBD up as a slave...sync the drives and then switch to Master-Master? Do you guys see any problems with this idea? I've already run successful tests on two nodes, but not having both at the same time has me concerned and I'd like to know the proper way to do this. Kind regards, Pieter
