Hello Smart People! I am trying to set up a DRBD configuration and I'm not sure it's even possible but I thought I'd check before I decide to move forward. Here's my set up: It's a four node Red Hat Cluster running GFS2. Two of the nodes are in Location A and the other two are in Location B. One node in location A is configured with DRBD and syncing a disk on another node in location B. Both of these nodes are primary so "synchronous" read/writes can occur. I was able to configure sparse mode protocol independent multicasting on the routers to pass RHCS heartbeat to and from each different geographic location. Here's the hitch. The node pairs are both connected to shared storage via their FC HBAs in each location. I have looked over the RHCS DRBD instructions at LINBIT and I have located the drbd.sh and drbd.metadata scripts in the compiled DRBD stuff. However, it's not clear to me if I can configure the node pairs in each location to failover the DRBD service to their node peer if they were to fail. The end state I am looking for is, if node A in location A fails, can DRBD be failed over to node B in location A? They are using traditional shared storage at each location. It seems like it should be doable.
