From Florian's blog from back in 2009: "In this case, you have one disk that is local, and another that is exported from a remote host using NBD or iSCSI. Those two disks are then mirrored with software RAID. Now this one is really terrible in terms of management. Role reversal always requires some custom glue, no support from cluster manages is available whatsoever, and split brain detection is poor or non existant. So if you really want to go down that alley then do — but please don’t call it a high availability cluster." I personally would like to see any possible issues fixed than cobble together something like that. As such, we've been avoiding using verify at all, because in the 8.3.x trees, using it often caused DRBD to hang and require a full system reboot because the kernel module would become completely unresponsive. I haven't had any problems with it in 8.4 yet, but I'm still a little skittish around the command in general. I've been invalidating hosts I know are bad. I too, would like to see verify become reliable and useful long term. -- Shaun Thomas OptionsHouse | 141 W.
