In the meantime, it will be great if these preliminary questions can be answered. Q: Is Protocol C a variant of any standard atomic commit protocol (like 2PC/3PC etc.)? Or is it a proprietary algorithm? Q: Let's assume there are 2 disks (D1, D2). Let's assume that D2 is experiencing a fail-recover situation, but D1 has failed after a D2 failure, but before D2 has recovered. What is the behavior of DRBD in such a case? Are all future disk writes blocked until both D1 and D2 are available, and are confirmed to be in sync? You need to explain what D1 and D2 exactly are. Are they 2 disks composing a single volume that is used as a baking device of a single drbd resource? Or maybe they are disks for a separate volumes of a single drbd resource? Or maybe each is a backing devices of 2 separate drbd resources? Or maybe ... etc.etc.etc. Regards, Ravi.
