Which Heartbeat version do you have? Version =< 2.1.3 is supported at the 
moment, 2.1.4 and partly 2.99.3 with pacemaker is supported in the current 

Try crm_mon, cibadmin -Q on all server nodes, if it does not work, you would 
have to debug that first. 

Sometimes there is problem with mgmtd daemon. When you stop the heartbeat 
and mgmtd is still running, kill it and then start the heartbeat again.

The gui expects at the moment "hacluster" as password for hacluster user. 
You can change the password in the drbd-gui.drbdg xml file (hbpw attribute) 
manually to match the password if you use some different password.
