    i am stuck on one of the step in the guide of Openfiler 2.3 Active/Passive Cluster (heartbeat,DRBD) With Offsite Replication Node

    [root@openfiler1 ~]# drbdadm create-md meta
    'meta' ignored, since this host (openfiler1.local) is not mentioned with an 'on' keyword.

    i understand the this might be some error in my /etc/drbd.conf file, but where is it?

    anyhelp will be appreciate.

    thank you.

    check if the names of the hosts of your ressources in drbd.conf file match with the cmd "uname -n"

    Suppose you have server1 and server2,

    Then in server1's drbd.conf mention 'on server1' as second resource

    and in server2's drbd.conf mention 'on server2' as second resource

    server1 drbd.conf:
    resource <resname> {
    on server2{...}
    on server1{...}

    server2 drbd.conf:
    resource <resname> {
    on server1{...}
    on server2{...}

    It works for me, I know these files should be exactly the same on both/all
    machines but they seem to not detect the resource conf if the current host
    is mentioned first.
