Re: drbd WAS working fine; but now fsck can't open /dev/drbd? ??
;-) well - as a followup to my followup...
I've confirmed that the drbd module IS loading.
The problem fsck is having is that drbd is marking the partition as
secondary, and as such, it is not RW accesssible.
So now this is looking like a drbd config problem; but all does look
fine; so I'm still a bit lost...
