Hi All,

One other question. I have a bunch of VM's using Xen disk images under the dom0's filesystem. Is it possible to use DRBD to "mirror" the Xen disk images for Xen VM's to use on another box for live migration, etc?

If your talking about having two xen boxes with DRBD under them and being able to live migrate between them yes, we do this today in production in two clusters.
