Hi all, >> ok ... still drbd 8.3.8 ... what does "iostat -dx" say during your test? > sadly, yes. elrepo is not an option here because its unofficial. After hunting the problem in the perc6-caches, page-caches, lvm-alignment, etc. and not finding anything, i managed to convince some people here. We are going to try the packages from the elrepo-repository. any advice besides "use the latest!"? I was going to use drbd83-utils-8.3.12-1.el5.elrepo.x86_64.rpm kmod-drbd83-8.3.12-1.el5.elrepo.x86_64.rpm since 8.4.x is sort of bleeding edge and still might contain some bugs. Even though the update on a test-host went flawlessly: Is there anything particular i need to look after before/after the update of the packages? Any notes on compatibility between 8.3.8-1 and 8.3.12-1 i should be aware of? Once the host is live again, i will report if that did the trick :-) regards volker
