Thanks for the information. I understand that the data is inconsistent but it happened to me that I'm syncing say 600GB data on one volume when the I need to stop the disk and I don't want the sync to go on anymore. Before stopping the disk, I have to stop the sync.

drbdadm invalidate <resource>
drbdadm up <resource>
Of course, though, that earns you yet another full sync, so it seems
like a pointless exercise to me. Maybe I'm not getting the point of your
