Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Same problem here.

- Xen Dom0 does not work fully in newer kernels
- newer DRBD seems not to work with kernel 2.6.32

A change from Xen to KVM is not an option for me, so I use DRBD 8.3.7  
in a conservative way (Primary/Secondary), no life migration.
