DRBD mirrors a block device over the network to another machine. Think of it as networked raid 1. It is a building block for setting up high availability (HA) clusters.

This packages includes the DRBD administration tools and integration scripts for heartbeat, pacemaker, rgmanager and xen.

They are compatible with the CentOS kmod-drbd82 and kmod-drbdr83 packages, the CentOS drbd83 packages has been renamed to upstream's preferred name drbd83-utils.

These packages are also compatible with the upstream packages from Linbit, however we decided to move the heartbeat, pacemaker, rgmanager and xen integration scripts directly into the drbd83-utils package, which properly obsoletes those packages. Please uninstall the drbd-km-<kernel> packages to avoid any conflicts.
