I need to migrate my existing LVM setup to drbd and I'm confused about meta-data, etc. I have done some reading and feel that I could benefit from starting the LVM's from scratch...but I cant do that. In the past, I setup a system with LVM doing the following: sdc 750GB RAID5 drive On Node 1 and Node 2: pvcreate /dev/sdc --success vgcreate vg1 /dev/sdc --success lvcreate -L 500G -n data1 vg1 --success sdd 500GB RAID10 Drive pvcreate /dev/sdd --success vgcreate vg2 /dev/sdd --success lvcreate -L 200G -n data2 vg2 --success mkfs.ext3 /dev/mapper/vg1/data1 --success mkfs.ext3 /dev/mapper/vg2/data2 --success mount /dev/mapper/vg1/data1 /mnt/data1 --success mount /dev/mapper/vg2/data2 /mnt/data2 --success So I'm trying to get DRBD up and running and started with the DRBD users guide. I couldnt find the appropriate way to get my LVM's properly initialized for use. create-md will destroy everything on the disks, so what do it do? external metadata? Where do I do this? I have space left on the two devices. is this where I configure the meta-data? Do I need to create another logical volume on each disk in order to get the external-meta-data to be used? Also, when doing this, what /etc/lvm/lvm.conf /udev rules/ drbd.conf settings would I need? I had an issue in the past with heartbeat hating the way I had LVMs setup. heartbeats vgchange commands knocked out my VG's and wouldn't mount the drives anymore. -- View this message in context: http://old.nabble.com/Migrate-LVM-to-DRBD%2BLVM---tp34680150p34680150.html Sent from the DRBD - User mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
