I would start with the network interfaces first. If you don't get this right the first time, you always will have problems later on. Use tcpdump -i <interface> and check if you see the expected traffic. Make sure your /etc/drbd.conf files are on both side the same and match your network configuration. Setup "dopd" to aviod "split-brain".

You do no longer have access to valid data. DRBD correctly refuses to go online with Inconsistent data. If it helps, you can think of it as losing the single good disk of a two disk degraded RAID1 while it is rebuilding. You want to avoid that. -- : Lars Ellenberg : LINBIT | Your Way to High Availability : DRBD/HA support and consulting http://www.linbit.com DRBD® and LINBIT® are registered trademarks of LINBIT, Austria. __ please don't Cc me, but send to list -- I'm subscribed _______________________________________________ drbd-user mailing list drbd-user at lists.linbit.com http://lists.linbit.com/mailman/listinfo/drbd-user
