drbd — The start and stop script for DRBD


/etc/init.d/drbd {start | stop | status | reload | restart | force-reload}


The /etc/init.d/drbd script is used to start and stop drbd on a system V style init system.

When using a cluster resource manger such as Pacemaker, DRBD should usually not be started by the init system, but should typically be exclusively controlled by the cluster manager. You should not use, and disable, the init script in this case. chmod -x /etc/init.d/drbd has proven most effective for this.

In order to use /etc/init.d/drbd, define a drbd configuration. See drbd.conf(5) for details.


This document was revised for version 9.0.0 of the DRBD distribution.
