I have DRBD in 2 nodes in 5 nodes cluster and I`d like share it via NFS.
I did it a few months ago and it is working corretlly.
I was only test array so I forgot for it and today I wanted make some tests and I can see drbd has only 90GB, not 1.7TB.
Ok I tried to redig my config and my cluster going to shadow mode (with question mark).
I had to restart pvestatd in all nodes.
Now I can`t run nfs server because he is in activating mode all the time.
Code:

Aug 29 15:24:39 pve5 systemd[1]: Starting NFS server and services...

My /etc/exports


Code:
/mnt/pve/DRBD_SSD       192.168.3.76(rw,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check) 192.168.3.78(rw,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check) 192.168.2.200(rw,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check) 192.168.3.75(rw,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_che
ck)

!st question is why is my nfs is in activating and not running mode.
2nd question is...what is the best practice to share DRBD array from 2 nodes over all nodes in cluster?
I thought NFS is the best way, but NFS service is fixed for IP and if node will be down array will be off too (Ok I can change IP in NFS sharing for another node from DRBD array).
Can I share DRBD around the cluster via another way?
