[DRBD-user] Error message: Failed to create meta-data for DRBD volume

Hi Gabor,

Thank you for your answer

My linstor-controller is not in a dedicated machine.
It is a combined node. And it is in this node where I have the problems of my original question.
In the satellite nodes, despite the missing line in the configuration file, no error occurs.
Can I have a controller + satellite in the same node running at the same time?
If so, how do I solve the problem in this combined node?

well - yes. you have that mixed up. If you have a dedicated machine for the linstor-controller, that is the only one which does not even have to have drbd installed.
I guess on your satellite, you are still missing the "linstor-resources.res" file with the its content that includes "/var/lib/linstor.d/*.res"
every drbd-using satellite has to have drbd installed AND have those config files correctly. the "drbdadm ..." commands are all executed on each affected satellite, not on the controller and especially not _only_ on the controller. In fact, the controller will never have any of those .res files (as long as it is a pure controller, and not a controller + satellite, i.e. combined node.)

Hope that helps,
