Hello, I would like to get the following configuration work, but I don' understand how to configure :(. - 2 Identical FSC 550 workstations running Xenserver 6.0 - each workstation with 2 SATA-II harddisks - all harddisks are same type with identical patitions - one drbd resource with two volumes (sda3 / sdb3) What I have done so far (on both machines) .. - installed xenserver on sda, but without any local storage repository. - create partitons sdb1 & sdb2 like sda, but I dont use it yet. - create patitions sda3 & sdb3 with gdisk (need GPT) - installed the drbd modules 8.4.1. - created a global config and a resource config for drbd - configured separate network device for drbd with iptables entrys The machines are up now and I get two devices /dev/drbd0 and /dev/drbd1 on machine 1. After setting machine 1 to primary and starting mirroring with drbdadm to machine 2 it took about 1 hour. Now drdb-overview says 'uptodate'. Easy until now. But how to gon on? All samples in the documentation are based on a single volume scenario. But I would like to use sda3 and sdb3 as stripe with lvm as a xen storage repository. So I decided to create a physical volume for /dev/drbd0 an one volume for /dev/drbd1 connecting them to a volume group. The right way? Without xen the next step is easy too. lvcreate with "-i2" parm will create a striped lvm volume. But creating a xen storage repository's is done with a "xe sr-create" command. No place to put the 2 devices /dev/drbd0 and /dev/drbd1 nor a option to create a striped volume. No need of creating any lvm volumes ?! Help is very welcome ... Henning
