DRBD did not eat your data; you've thrown it away... > What is the correct procedure to prevent this and the right way to bring in > a new node? There is no correct procedure for what it sounds like you were trying to do. DRBD only allows one device to be primary at a time (aside from rather more advanced cases involving clustered filesystems). This means you do not create a filesystem on web001. You need to *thoroughly* understand sections 1 and 2 of the Introduction before you plan your deployment: http://www.drbd.org/docs/introduction/ Then, as it appears you've already successfully installed DRBD, you need to follow these directions step-by-step: http://www.drbd.org/users-guide-emb/ch-configure.html At the end you will have a filesystem you can use *either* on web001 *or* on web002, but not both at the same time. -Ben
