Hi Rick,

I've sought for proper working solutions as well, and unfortunately found
much the same obstacles as you have.
a DRBD port to FreeBSD would be great, but I think it would be a lot of
work. The way it can recover from a broken mirror makes it a killer app IMO.

This is what I ended up doing:
- Use application level mirroring where possible
- Use rsync where (small) data loss is acceptable
- buy dedicated hardware where HA storage is mandatory

regards,
Ruben
