This is more along the lines of notes from my installation with proxmox 2.0 and drbd 8.4.
I have really wanted this release primarily because it supports multiple DRBD volumes on a single host. For example, if you are adding on several drives or partitions that you would like to run as separate resources within DRBD, 8.4, I believe is the first release to have this capability. If you are looking for real-time synchronization between nodes on separate servers, this is the way to go.
Main page that I referred to was documentation on http://www.drbd.org/users-guide/s-build-deb.html
Although, not all packages and exact sequence of commands was clearly laid on this page so hopefully this helps.
Git clone first
- apt-get install build-essential autoconf debhelper debconf-utils docbook-xml docbook-xsl dpatch flex git module-assistant
- git clone git://git.drbd.org/drbd-8.4.git
- cd drbd-8.4
- dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b -uc
- cd /usr/src
- dpkg -i drbd*.deb
- m-a a-i drbd8
That should do it.
More to come on the configuration files.
