Hi all,

i was also just setting up PVE 4.1 with DRBD9. But I’ve setup drbd9 in the “old-way”.

Currently there is no load on the system and everything is working like expected. But now I think about resetup everything with latest Proxmox 3.x and latest DRBD 8.

I do not see any noticeable feature in PVE 4 I will miss in PVE3 but I am thinking more about problems in Upgrade process later on…

Where do you guys got the information, that DRBD 9 is NOT production ready?

>> Proxmox: a kernel with an updated DRBD module (still DRBD 9.0) was released but the issue persisted. Still wondering how a "non-production ready" feature could end up in a "production ready" bundle like Proxmox 4 without a choice to get DRBD 8.4 back.
