6.4 Testing


In the following steps we will configure the disks to synchronize and choose a master node.

Step1

On the Primary Domain Controller

[root@node1]# service drbd start

On the Backup Domain Controller

[root@node2]# service drbd start


Step2

[root@node1]# service drbd status
drbd driver loaded OK; device status:
version: 0.7.17 (api:77/proto:74)
SVN Revision: 2093 build by root@node1, 2006-04-23 14:40:20
0: cs:Connected st:Secondary/Secondary ld:Inconsistent
   ns:25127936 nr:3416 dw:23988760 dr:4936449 al:19624 bm:1038 lo:0 pe:0 ua:0 ap:0

You can see both devices are ready, and waiting for a Primary drive to be activated which will do an initial synchronization to the secondary device.


Step3

Stop the heartbeat service on both nodes.


Step4

We are now telling DRBD to make node1 the primary drive.

[root@node1]#  drbdadm -- --do-what-I-say primary all
[root@node1 ~]# service drbd status
drbd driver loaded OK; device status:
version: 0.7.23 (api:79/proto:74)
SVN Revision: 2686 build by root@node1, 2007-01-23 20:26:13
0: cs:SyncSource st:Primary/Secondary ld:Consistent
   ns:67080 nr:85492 dw:91804 dr:72139 al:9 bm:268 lo:0 pe:30 ua:2019 ap:0
       [==>.................] sync'ed: 12.5% (458848/520196)K
       finish: 0:01:44 speed: 4,356 (4,088) K/sec

Step5

Create a filesystem on our RAID devices.

[root@node1]# mkfs.ext3 /dev/drbd0
