Yes, you did not follow the documentation:

"on host-name 
 Carries the necessary configuration parameters for a DRBD device of the 
enclosing resource. host-name is mandatory and must match the Linux host name 
(uname -n) of one of the nodes."

Apart from that: if you plan to use heartbeat and dopd (and you really 
should!), then you will want to upgrade to the lastet version of drbd and 
heartbeat. Otherwise this won't work.

Stefan
