TCP offload engine or TOE is a technology used in network interface cards (NIC) to offload processing of the entire TCP/IP stack to the network controller. It is primarily used with high-speed network interfaces, such as gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet, where processing overhead of the network stack becomes significant.
In this tutorial, I will explain how to replace the drbd backend devices (for data and metadata) without destroying the information. Actually, during this process, the information will be safely kept on the other node.

Assuming you have already the needed packages, read what follows:
