I have researched some about mixing DRBD an ISCSI.  An what I am finding is opinions about as vast as what people like on pizza.

So I figure I would ask it here...
Can I take 2 servers, setup DRBD between them, then configure ISCSI on both servers but only connect to 1 of the ISCSI targets.  Leave the other ISCSI service turned off until needed.  I would create a VIP between the two servers so that the clients wouldn't need to be reconfigured to point to the new active ISCSI.  I am looking for a fail over file system which will hold my ISO an boot images for my PXE environment.

DRBD would be configured to listen to a backend network using a small 1gig switch.  The ISCSI would be configure to listen on the frontend network connected to the DMZ.
