How to Install DRBD on CentOs 6.2

RHEL 6 and CentOs 6.2 has no more yum repository for DRBD. if you want to Install DRBD on RHEL 6 you need a support contract with RedHat.

We will use ELRepo repository to install DRBD on CentOs 6.2.

Step-1 : download elrep using wget

[root@dbase1 ~]# mkdir /download
[root@dbase1 ~]# cd /download/
[root@dbase1 ~]# wget http://elrepo.org/elrepo-release-6-4.el6.elrepo.noarch.rpm

Output

Step-2 : Install downloaded rpm

[root@dbase1 download]# rpm -ivUh elrepo-release-6-4.el6.elrepo.noarch.rpm

Output

   1:elrepo-release         ########################################### [100%]
[root@dbase1 download]#

Step-3 : Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo ( change line #8 ‘enable=0′ )

[root@dbase1 download]# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo 
### Name: ELRepo.org Community Enterprise Linux Repository for el6
### URL: http://elrepo.org/

[elrepo]
name=ELRepo.org Community Enterprise Linux Repository - el6
baseurl=http://elrepo.org/linux/elrepo/el6/$basearch/
mirrorlist=http://elrepo.org/mirrors-elrepo.el6
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-elrepo.org
protect=0

Step-4 : Now you can Install drbd83 on your CentOs 6.2 Box with ‘yum’.

[root@dbase1 download]# yum --enablerepo=elrepo install drbd83-utils kmod-drbd83
