    change storage.cfg

    Hello. Is anybody know how can I safely add third node from drbd-cluster to pve-cluster? If I change redundancy level and nodes list in storage.cfg for drbd-storage, will it break guest systems, that work on this storage? Do I need to turn off all before make changes? or I can do it on the fly?

    DRBD9 daemon not started at startup

    Hi! I am playing with Proxmox 4.3 and DRDB9. I followed this guide, because it explains how to setup DRDB (8.x) on top of a physical disk (I don't want to use it on top of LVM).
