I can create a Volume Group and the data gets replicated from one  
machine to the other.  This command fails though:

[root at thing1 lvm]# /usr/sbin/lvcreate -n vmdata -l 69972 thing0

   Failed to activate new LV.
     Creating volume group backup "/etc/lvm/backup/thing0" (seqno 17).

I don't know if this is a drbd issue or an lvm.  I can't seem to find  
anything on it.
