Hi folks,

I am wondering if it would be possible to create a drbdmanage cluster where the hostname don’t match the ip address of the network interface to use.

In detail: 
I have a three node configuration with the ip visible to the outside:
node1 IP:  hostname fs1 
node2 IP:  hostname fs2
node3 IP:  hostname fs3

Each of the nodes has a second network adapter which shall be used for the storage distribution (and is not visible to the outside).

if I do 
  drbdmanage init
  drbdmanage add-node fs2
  drbdmanage add-node fs3

It will not work because the IP-address of "fs1" is and not and so on.
I hope it’s possible to understand my description...

I can not change the hostnames according to the storage network because it would break other services for the outside.

So my question: how would I configure it to get the second network adapter used.

Thanks in advance,
