Probably me misunderstanding you :)

(This is probably more for the linux-ha mailing list now, but it may be 
of interest here...)

There are various parameters in the Filesystem ocf:

<action name="start" timeout="60" />
<action name="stop" timeout="60" />
<action name="notify" timeout="60" />
<action name="monitor" depth="0" timeout="40" interval="20" 
start-delay="10" />
<action name="validate-all" timeout="5" />
<action name="meta-data" timeout="5" />

But this is odd.  The start timeout shows as 60s.  Yet linux-ha killed 
the mount operation after 10 seconds, therefore making drbd permanently 
stale.  Is this another bug?

This was really my reason for mailing, I wanted to see if there were any 
ocf experts out there...  As well as to report a possible bug.

I am making better progress by upping all these values.  If I find 
anything of significant interest, I'll report back :)
