thank you for this hint. of course, i exported __DRBD_NODE__=node_0
and __DRBD_NODE__=node_1 before doing so and this is working:

nevertheless, i substituted node_0 and node_1 with the real
hostnames and succeeded.
i guess, that drbd(adm) (method drbd_khelper?) does not pass that
environment variable to its helper command: /sbin/drbdadm
is this a bug or a feature?
