Is there any way of downgrading 8.4.1 to 8.3.12 without erasing the drbd partition? When I try to start drbd 8.3.12 on a 8.4.1 partition, I get: # service drbd start Starting DRBD resources: [ admin no suitable meta data found :( Command '/sbin/drbdmeta 0 v08 /dev/md2 internal check-resize' terminated with exit code 255 drbdadm check-resize admin: exited with code 255 d(admin) 0: Failure: (119) No valid meta-data signature found. ==> Use 'drbdadm create-md res' to initialize meta-data area. <== [admin] cmd /sbin/drbdsetup 0 disk /dev/md2 /dev/md2 internal --set-defaults --create-device --fencing=resource-and-stonith failed - continuing! s(admin) n(admin) ]. OK, but when I try the suggested command: # drbdadm create-md admin pvs stderr: /dev/md2: Skipping (regex) pvs stderr: Failed to read physical volume "/dev/md2" pvs stderr: Unlocking /var/lock/lvm/P_global pvs stderr: _undo_flock /var/lock/lvm/P_global md_offset 2873200996352 al_offset 2873200963584 bm_offset 2873113276416 Found LVM2 physical volume signature 2805774684 kB left usable by current configuration Could not determine the size of the actually used data area. Device size would be truncated, which would corrupt data and result in 'access beyond end of device' errors. If you want me to do this, you need to zero out the first part of the device (destroy the content). You should be very sure that you mean it. Operation refused. Command 'drbdmeta 0 v08 /dev/md2 internal create-md' terminated with exit code 40 drbdadm create-md admin: exited with code 40 Since I'm not certain that the problems I'm having with cman+pacemaker+drbd are caused by my drbd version, I'm reluctant to do this (and spend several hours restoring the partitions) unless I absolutely have to. -- Bill Seligman | Phone: (914) 591-2823 Nevis Labs, Columbia Univ | mailto://email@example.com PO Box 137 | Irvington NY 10533 USA | http://www.nevis.columbia.edu/~seligman/ -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
