Hi all, I have two hosts (debian squeeze amd64) each with two disks (raid1 with mdadm) and lvm for their partitions. I'm planning to use DRBD between these hosts. There is a good advice about using existing lvs here on the mailinglist: http://lists.linbit.com/pipermail/drbd-user/2009-February/011464.html But there are still some open questions: For each (existing) LV to replicate I have to use a dedicated metadisk, is that correct ? Or can I use the same metadisk LV as for the first LV ? I'm planning to create a new LV for the meta-data as it is described in the mail above. Or should I use drbd for the whole raid on the disk ? What are the pros and cons between using just LVs or using the whole disk ? Thanks and regards Peter
