Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Just to complete Lars' message.  Use the following command to setup the primary node on the machine that is supposed to be the master (or active):

drbdsetup /dev/nb0 primary

Of course, you could use nb1, nb2, etc' if you have more than one partition.

Primary/Secondary are *STATES* not nodes.
They could be named "Active" and "Standby".
Having both nodes in "Standby" is normal,
*you* or typically your *clustermanager* should decide
which node should be the "Active" one.
