Dear Linux-ha and drbd,

I am trying to mount a 3TB file system controlled through drbd 8.0.3, 
using linux-ha 2.1.2.

This has caused a big problem!

The ocf for mounting the file system waits 10 seconds for the mount to 
complete.  But a 3TB file system takes 20 seconds at least.

Worse, when it tries to kill the mount operation, it leaved drbd in an 
unstable state where any action on the drbd resource results in:

drbd1: State change failed: Device is held open by someone

This can only cured by a reboot as drbd daemon can't be stopped, even 
when every other PID is killed.

My problem will be fixed if I can change the wait time to 20 seconds.

If any kind linux-ha member can let me know how this is done, it would 
be very useful.


But I suspect the problem of killing the mount and therefore leaving 
drbd unstable is a bug somewhere.


Kind regards,

Ben Clewett.
