Hi, I use Ganeti which is a virtualization manager (based on xen/kvm) which uses drbb. Anyway, it uses only drbdsetup + drbdmeta but : - drbd.conf isn't user - drbdadm is *never* used to create the drbd device, the only commands use are : * drbdsetup disk * drbdsetup net * drbdsetup syncer * drbdmeta create-md So ganeti creates a drbd device using these commands. At this stage, the setup is : - A data device, let's say /dev/foo/bar_data (foo is a lvm group) - A metadata device, let's say /dev/foo/bar_meta - A drbd device /dev/drbd1 The challenge is to put an existing disk with a full system on the preconfigured lvm volume (bar_data), so the steps are : - drbdsetup /dev/drbd1 down - dd if=/some/dev/already/configured of=/dev/foo/bar_data This step is good, but now I need to force metadata resynchronisation on /dev/foo/bar_meta, but I can't use drbdadm because there is nothing in drbd.conf, and nothing made with drbdadm, so I don't have any ressource :) The question is : how can I force metadata resynchronisation on an "external" partition only using drbdmeta and drbdsetup ?
