So it seems Red Hat is a bit surprised (I’m not) by the number of subscribers on the “DRBD in RHEL 6, please” bug tripling in a couple of days. I guess they are also getting a few more tweets than usual about this.
But please, Red Hat’s EMEA Chief Supreme Open Source Evangelist saying “DRBD is limited with regard to integration with [Red Hat] Cluster”? Give me a break. I wrote the Red Hat Cluster Suite integration for DRBD. Lon Hohberger merged it almost a year ago. He also took care of the cluster.conf schema changes so DRBD properly integrates with Red Hat Cluster management tools. It’s been in all upstream Red Hat Cluster releases since. Lon also wrote the original cookbook for getting GFS2 running on Dual-Primary DRBD. Back in 2007!
The other cluster stack the RHEL 6 beta ships with, Pacemaker, has supported DRBD from the get-go.
That’s “limited integration”?
