Bill, I have never done the combination, but I have done both DRBD resources, as well as encrpyted PV's. I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work because with that setup, DRBD would be agnostic to the encryption, and whatever else you're doing... ~Noah On Oct 6, 2011, at 12:06 PM, Bill Asher wrote: > Noah, no, I was trying to encrypt the file system during install first and found that doesn't work, so now I'm trying to do the encryption after the drbd resource is created, like you said. > > Has anyone else done this or know that it works? > > Thanks for you response.. > > -----Original Message----- > From: drbd-user-bounces at lists.linbit.com [mailto:drbd-user-bounces at lists.linbit.com] On Behalf Of Noah Mehl > Sent: Wednesday, October 05, 2011 6:57 PM > To: drbd-user at lists.linbit.com > Subject: Re: [DRBD-user] DRBD on Encrypted FS > > Bill, > > I would suggest creating a drbd resource, and then using that as the backing for an encrypted PV.
