Hi, I installed two systems with Ubuntu 14.04 and updated them with all available updates. The kernel version is 3.19.0. It has drbd kernel module version 8.4.5 and drbd8-utils version 8.4.4. Now the drbdadm commands complain about the version mismatch "you should upgrade your drbd tools!" Even more problematic is that the command drbdadm wait-connect comes with an error message "error creating netlink socket". This command is used in the standard start/stop script /etc/init.d/drbd. Unfortunately Ubuntu has no update yet for the drbd8-utils package. I found out that starting with drbd 8.4.5 the userland tools now have their own repository and have new version numbers (e.g. 8.9.4). I could not find out what version should be used for the drbd 8.4.5 version but it seems these versions can handle several drbd kernel versions. So I downloaded the version 8.9.4 and built it. As I do not want to get too much unknown changes to my Ubuntu configuration I just copied the drbdadm-84 and drbdsetup-84 to /sbin and replaced the /sbin/drbdadm and /sbin/drbdsetup by soft links to the 84 versions. Now the wait-connect is not failing anymore. However the tool is still complaining about the version difference: "please don't mix different DRBD series.". I wonder if my approach does not have side effects as I only replaced drbdadm and drdbsetup. I wonder when there will be a Debian/Ubuntu package available with the new drbd-utils version which could be used on Ubuntu 14.04. I wonder why the new version of drbd8-utils complains on the drbd kernel module version while there is no drbd8-utils version 8.4.5 available. Has anyone already some answers?
