Subject: Re: [DRBD-user] Linstor/DRBD Documentation Gap: Using Multiple Network Paths

Hello Eric,

Thanks for mentioning the gap in the LINSTOR documentation here. The `PrefNic` property that you used will not create path entries in a DRBD resource configuration file. Instead, use the `linstor node interface` and `linstor resource-connection path` commands.

We added sub-section 2.7.1, Creating Multiple DRBD Paths with LINSTOR, to the LINSTOR User's Guide with more details and example commands.

Available here: https://linbit.com/drbd-user-guide/linstor-guide-1_0-en/#s-creating-multiple-drbd-paths

Hope this helps you.

We tried to follow the Linstor documentation for setting up multiple network paths, but there seems to be a step missing.


What did we miss? There seems to be a step missing in the documentation where it tells you how to make DRBD use both NICs and not just the preferred one.
