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


I RTFM many times and googled most uncovered issues BUT there must be 
some missing vital link in it.

1. The drdb init script loads drbd module and does a bit more BUT it 
doesn't decide about its role (primary or secondary); that sounds ok as 
it should be heartbeat's task (and I assume that it will issue the right 
commands to drbd) so my question is: what config file is the one 
responsible for bringing the proper ip address up on the secondary node?

Logically it should be the /etc/drbd.conf file as the doc only mention 
that one service ip should be listed in the /etc/ha.d/haresource file:

joe drbddisk::r0 Filesystem::/dev/drbd0::/var/lib/mysql::ext3 mysql

My problem is that heartbeat do NOT bring up the ip for it 
( and cannot sync.
Am I missing something obvious not mentioned in the documentation (the 
missing link) ?

 on node1 {
    device /dev/drbd0;
    disk /dev/sda1;
    address; #service address brought up by heartbeat (on node1)
    meta-disk /dev/sdb1[0];
  on node2 {
    device /dev/drbd0;
    disk /dev/sda1;
    address; #service address THAT SHOULD BE BUT IS NOT brought up by heartbeat (on node2)
    meta-disk /dev/sdb1[0];
