DRBD on OCFS2


Hi,

OS: SLES 11 SP1
File system: OCFS2 with HA

I want to replicate data on san storage using DRBD. Mount point have data and the size is about 2TB.

Last time i tried to configure and it's need to format. Does it necessary to format? Or i need to unmount first?
The mount point have data. Please assist me or give some idea.

Thanks.

Seems very straightforward: you have to format the devices for use with the new file system. So, do it. Back your data up, format whatever you need to, and get it going with DRDB, then restore your data.
