I have Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS and trying to upgrade to a newer version of
DRBD.  My plan is to perform an upgrade on my dev servers and then create
rpm or deb packages to deploy to my production servers.


Whether I follow the instructions from the DRBD site, or similar postings
from others based on Google searches I always wind up at the same dead end.


Post compile and install,  the boot screen includes an error message from
DRBD indicating "no resources defined!".  Yet the resource files in
/etc/drbd.d are still there and intact.  Lsmod shows everything is installed
as it should, and drbdadm command now shows the same "no resources defined!"
error message.  /proc/drbd shows the new version of drbd is installed.


The steps I follow are below:



apt-get install rpm xsltproc flex git

Download and install source

     Cd /usr/src

wget http://oss.linbit.com/drbd/8.4/drbd-8.4.1.tar.gz

tar xfvz drbd-8.4.1.tar.gz

Configure and Compile

cd drbd-8.4.1/

./configure --with-utils --with-km


make install
