Hope I did not double post - Apologies if I did. I am using DRBD 8.2.6. The application is qmail in a Centos 4.8 openVZ VPS. The VPS runs on the DRBD device. While syncing, no mail gets delivered (to local or remote destinations), although they appear in the qmail queue. If I disconnect the primary node, mail is delivered. Reading qmail documentation, qmail forks the messages in the queue to qmail-send, which hands off to either qmail-lspawn (local) or qmail-rspawn (remote) for mail processing. From the qmail docs: qmail-lspawn reads a series of local delivery commands from descriptor 0, invokes qmail-local to perform the deliveries, and prints the results to descriptor 1. It passes aliasempty to qmail-local as the default delivery instruc- tion. This leads to the question, is there some sort of block on the fd (or other related IO services) while DRBD is syncing? Thanks in advance. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo! Mail has the best spam protection around http://mail.yahoo.com
