Re: [Xen-users] Using XEN 4.1 to run Windows 7 DOMU on SERVER1, replicated the HVM to SERVER2 using DRBD. Win7 DOMU doesn't boot in SERVER2 after replication

I'm not sure what you mean here -- for things to work you *must* arrange
for whatever block device is exposed to be the guest to be
identical/in-sync on both ends.

I don't know much about DRDB but if /dev/drdb0 is the same logical
device on both ends I would hope that it doesn't much care about the
placement of the underlying physical medium used to provide the backing
store on both sides.

fdisk, kpartx, mount, understanding DRBD enough to be sure (or to know
the appropriate tests/techniques, which I don't).

Runtime stuff is in xenstore.

You didn't answer my question about the disk configuration you are using
in the drdb case.
