Hi, As a newbie to DRBD could anyone answer the following or make reasonable suggestions? Is it possible to create a DRBD cluster with only 1 node initialised? If it is how long would it work before lack of resources (disk space, I guess) would break it? Scenario: We have a machine with 20TB of data that we need to clusterize in location A and another machine with enough space available in location B. The idea is to create multiple resources on the machine in location B and copy the data from the machine in location A to the machine in location B. Then access the data from the machine in location B. After all the data is copied to the machine in location B we would like to then create the resources on the machine in location A and start synchronisation between the 2. As the 2 locations are separated by a great distance the data copy will take quite some time hence the second question. The reason for the first question is that we don't have enough available space in location A to create the resources initially. TIA Regards Derek
