Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Re: Using DRBD w/Xen disk images under CentOS?
I'm using Centos 5.2 with Xen 3.30 and DRBD 8.2.6. Occasional issues
with live migration but otherwise it all works nicely. I use
Primary/Secondary migration, dual primary not allowed in DRBD config.

Do you use drbd primary/primary and live migration? If it works, which
version of drbd and which kernel/xen version are you using? What is in

I have tons of problems with this setup: jittery domU clock, random
domU crashes (luckily no dom0), network going down randomly in domU
after migration, etc, but have no clue what could be the problem lvm,
drbd or xen, or all three.
