Debian squeeze with the cluster-stuff from backports. And the kernel from backports because of the e1000e network cards, which makes drbd complain because kernel-space is one micro-version smaller then userspace. I plan to downgrade the kernel once I create or find dkms-packages for the e1000e... I have to admitt that I haven't yet decided whether the third and following nodes will receive the virt-pool via iscsi+gfs or nfs, iscsi+gfs has the advantage that I could do multipath-iscsi. That being said, I cant wait for drbd to support more then two active mirrors! Have fun, Arnold -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
