Hi Etienne
Quite simple, after setting up the resources in /etc/drbd.conf (you can 
already add the entries for rthe second node there), load the module with 
modprobe drbd,  create the metadata with drbdadm create-md all, then start 
up the resources with drbdadm up all, then promote it with drbdadm -- 
--overwrite-data-of-peer primary all. Then you can go ahead and use the 
DRBD-devices in any way needed.
When the other node is available, copy over the config, create metadata on 
slave, start up drbd, It should start to sync immediately after that.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best Regards

[DRBD-user] DRDB single node

Hello List,

I have one machine at the moment, and will receive another machine in a 
month. The issue is, I would like DRBD setup on the machine so that when 
the other one arrives I can connect them and have the second machine up 
in no time.

How would you configure this, ie make DRBD ignore its peer until I have 
the second machine.

Thank You,
Etienne Pretorius
