Description dijuremo 2010-03-05 07:44:31 EST
Description of problem:
drbd (a distributed replicated block device) has been included in the linux kernel as of 2.6.33


commit 456eac94789e1b512515e6974e091ef655f343de
Merge: dedd0c2 f06f135

    Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-2.6-block
    * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-2.6-block:
      fs/bio.c: fix shadows sparse warning
      drbd: The kernel code is now equivalent to out of tree release 8.3.7
      drbd: Allow online resizing of DRBD devices while peer not reachable (needs to be explicitly forced)
      drbd: Don't go into StandAlone mode when authentification failes because of network error

It would be very useful if it is added to RHEL 5.X and RHEL 6 as well as the userland tools, such already seems to exist for Fedora Core 12, see

You'll definitely want to file an RFE SR for this as well.

Do we need a separate bz for RHEL6?
Comment 5 dijuremo 2010-04-29 13:11:24 EDT
Our people with support contracts have opened SR #2017020
Comment 6 Alexander Lindqvist 2010-07-22 09:51:57 EDT
+1. Please add DRBD support to RHEL5. We use it in production on several servers.
Comment 7 Tom Coughlan 2011-02-09 13:42:22 EST
Linbit/DRBD hs been added to the Red Hat Partner Center:


Red Hat will partner with Linbit to provide DRBD support, rather than include it directly in RHEL 5 (or RHEL 6).
