I'm aware of RAID features, but benefit of using DRBD (as I can understand from description) is the fact, that read/write operations from the client goes only to the block device on the active node, while sync is ongoing in background to the second node. > So my solution is: > Create a network interface alias with an other IP address and you can sync > the two block device on the same host. OK, I can easily create an IP alias, it's not a problem. But let me rephrase the question: - if I create IP aliases, can I run "active node" and "secondary node" DRBD daemons/services/drivers on the same host? Regards, Alexey
