Hi everyone, along with the rc1 release of DRBD 9.0.0, we are releasing another pre-release of drbdmanage. Here are some of the new features of this release: - drbdmanage volumes are created with specified net size now; drbdmanage calculates the space required for DRBD meta-data and adds it to the space required for the actual data - this also works the other way around: drbdmanage can report the net amount of free space, so that when you create a new DRBD volume, you will have that much space for actual data - because the space required for the resource's meta-data had already been considered when drbdmanage reported the amount of remaining free space - there is a "free-space n" command now; it tells you the maximum size for an n-tuple redundant volume - volumes created by drbdmanage do no longer stay in the "Primary" role on one of the drbdmanage nodes after initialization; you can begin to use them immediately - creating a new drbdmanage cluster has even more automation built in now; if ssh keys are present, drbdmanage can attempt to run the join command on the newly added node remotely through ssh, so you are no longer required to copy&paste the join command to the new node - more comfortable usage: most list output is sorted now, the size argument of the "new-volume" command takes unit suffixes (e.g., "35gb"), and there are shortcut aliases for many commands (for example, try "nn" instead of "new-node") If you have questions, or if you would like to provide feedback, feel free to post to the mailing list, or to visit our IRC channel at FreeNode #drbd9+drbdmanage.
