Configure DRDB afterwards?
Hi,

is it possible afterwards to have an logical volume to be mirrored to a second
machine by DRDB?

Our backups are stored on disk and I'm thinking about to have a second machine
to have this mirrored. But I have no change to copy 30 TB somewhere and
restore it after I had configured DRDB.

Regards,
Marc

Thanks for that information. I'll have a look on it next week.

Ups. :-)
