Hi all, as you can imagine i need some help :) I reinstalled the OS on a server, from debian 7 with drbd to debian 8 without drbd (I actually don't need drbd anymore on this server) The installation went fine, as well as booting and performance, but .. I'm getting a few of this line in the kern logs: systemd-gpt-auto-generator: Failed to determine partition table type of /dev/sda: Input/output error around 30 times and then it stops. So after some googling I've tried this: root at pcmr:~# lsblk -fs NAME FSTYPE LABEL UUID MOUNTPOINT sda1 xfs 1490d770-8c7a-41b9-9af0-1761f7cde4e1 /boot └─sda drbd fda4aa032add9632 sda2 xfs 26d59afd-a2c4-488d-a286-9573e2730f84 / └─sda drbd fda4aa032add9632 sda3 btrfs c7ce9dc4-f17f-417b-9660-58c7a5400aa7 /var └─sda drbd fda4aa032add9632 sda4 swap 366cf7e2-fada-4b64-b2cb-faae467914cf [SWAP] └─sda drbd fda4aa032add9632 and as you can see there are some drbd bits which survived the format. It looks like I need to use wipefs but since I access this server only thru a kvm (and must upload the iso from my home network, very slow ..), I'd like to ask you: what's the correct way to clean an hdd from a previous drbd cluster ? Can I do it directly from the OS or do I need to run a live-cd ? Thanks for your help, btw i use drbd from around 5 years on many servers, also under quite heavy load and never had a single problem, never lost a bit *thumbs up*
