Hi.

Thanks for comments.
I asked my "tux-yellowpage" colleague nearby and:
- we've upated my PVE System with recommendet sec. patches
- found the drbd.ko 8.3.1
- modprobe to kernel
- new line drbd to "/etc/modules"
- apt-get install -t lenny-backports  drbd8-utils the RIGHT version

And now starting to configure drbd ....hopefully everything will be ok.

Regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Yes, when I was hacking around with DRBD on Proxmox 1.3, which does come 
with DRBD 8.3.1 embedded in the kernel, I initially just did "apt-get 
install drbd8-utils", but that installed an older 8.0.14 version of the 
CLI tools. It seemed to start working, but when I tried to actually sync 
up two machines, one of them errored out and they refused to start the 
sync process. I finally went to the Debian package repository and found 
the "lenny-backports" section...

http://packages.debian.org/lenny-backports/drbd8-utils

...which has the file I needed...

drbd8-utils_8.3.2-1~bpo50+1_amd64.deb

After downloading you have to "dpkg" to install it manually. Each time I 
run a CLI command it whines at me that the 8.3.2 utils are now actually 
newer than the 8.3.1 kernel, and they should match, but it still works.

Remember that just because DRBD is in the kernel does not mean that a 
DRBD-replicated piece of VM storage is trivial to use in Proxmox as of 
version 1.3; it's not in the GUI, and the two machines don't have a good 
idea of who is primary and who is secondary, and the .conf files need to 
be either moved to the DRBD portion or manually copied to both servers, 
etc... this is a totally out-of-the-norm hack. Try to experiment with it, 
but also try to watch for what Martin and Dietmar will bring out in 
version 1.4.

Hi.

I'm trying to add new software (DRDB) from the official repos and
"aptitude" tells me that there are some security updates available.
Now I wonder if there are any don'ts on PVE 1.3?

Anyone there with an idea?

Pls provide details - which apt sources do you use and which updates are 
missing?

Proxmox VE has DRBD 8.3.1 included, so you need the drbd8-utils in the 
same version to manage.

Br, Martin
