I have drbd using a logical volume for a disk. I am wondering the best way to back this partition up. The current system that this DRBD setup is replacing takes a snap shot of a logical volume, mounts it locally in another location and then rsync's that directory to an offsite location. My question is: if I take a snapshot of the logical volume used by drbd, will I be able to mount that locally (and easily?) or will I have to do a strange setup where I have a resource in drbd.conf that is used only for the backup and I'll have to bring it up in a degraded fashion on the primary to get it to mount to do the rsync? Thanks! J
