I'm running version 8.3.11 on a two node Fedora16-x86_64 setup. I've read all of the official documentation, but I'm unclear what the correct procedure is for (manually) promoting the secondary to become primary when the original primary is down. I thought it would be as simple as "drbdadm -f primary r0", but that keeps failing: 0: State change failed: (-2) Need access to UpToDate data Command 'drbdsetup 0 primary' terminated with exit code 17 I've read a few scattered threads that I need to first invalidate the peer (original primary), but that also fails, because its (still) down. Surely I'm missing something simple here? thanks!
