A search for previous posts in these forums didn't turn up much about drbd, and I already opened up a bug before discovering a little more about this issue (I recommend anyone interested in this have a read of what I submitted)

Just wondering if anyone is implementing high availability clustering using block replication (IMO likely DRBD).

I don't endorse my mistake of creating a bug before discussing as much as possible in these forums. If anyone has ideas or knows how to implement drbd 8.4 which is provided by recent kernels, I'd appreciate any input.

Also, if there is source for the drbd "tools" which I'm trying to locate since at the moment I feel it's the most likely candidate causing the error I describe in the bug.
