Well it looks like you need two packages for this to work:

kmod-drbd-xen.x86_64 : drbd kernel module(s)
kmod-drbd.x86_64 : drbd kernel module(s)
kmod-drbd-xen.x86_64 : drbd kernel module(s)
kmod-drbd.x86_64 : drbd kernel module(s)
kmod-drbd-xen.x86_64 : drbd kernel module(s)
drbd.x86_64 : Distributed Redundant Block Device driver for Linux
drbd.x86_64 : Distributed Redundant Block Device driver for Linux


That's a snippet of what I get.
The module you need will be in the kmod package.

So run:

Code:
rpm -qa "*drbd*"
To see what you have installed.

The issue is you are starting this drbd service and you have [or default] it configured to use /dev/sda but /dev/sda is in you mounted as /, /boot/, /home and /var

Check you configuration, try using a disk that is not in use/mounted.

I am sorry I do not know how drbd works. So can't say. I am sure the manual would say.

Hello,

At this link you'll find an easy to follow, step by step guide for setting up and configuring DRBD on CentOS. Compare it to yours, with special attention to the mounted/unmounted state of the partitions .

Kind regards,

Eric

Actually DRBD doing replication and distribution of the data among the storage system(say like you have physically 2 different storage areas and you are replicate your data within these two storage system). I do not understand your questions what is your intention to install DRDB and why do you ask this with out clustering?

Before start the DRBD manually unmount the particular partition (the partition that you are using for replication). if everything fine then comments the entry from fstab permanently (for particular partition)
