It did appear to operate ok when I first set up the server - pings appeared fine etc. However, the faulty card was picked up by the OS when I re-installed it but the OS stated that it could not configure it. Using another NIC did not give this issue and when re-configuring DRBD, all connected and sync'd fine with the non-live directly connected nic's.

It was unfortunate that the NIC was actually intermittently failing when I was performing the initial setups and causing this problem. I hope this may help others that mey see the same issue.

Thanks for feeding it back John!

Interesting to see what happened and I'm sure it will help others along the way
