I'am no expert but I would guess:
- disconnect drbd
- you might want to use a dedicated meta-disk /dev/cciss/c0d0p9[0]; in 
your drbd.conf
- prepare partitions on both sides using identical parameters ( sfdisk 
-l /dev/cciss/c0d0p8 > tmppart  followed by a sfdisk /dev/cciss/c0d0p8 < 
tmppart on the other side )
- clean it using dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/cciss/c0d0p9 and invalidate 
your drbd0
- make it primary drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 primary --do-what-I-say
- rebuild the filesystem using mkfs.ext3 /dev/drbd0
- reconnect drbd
