that's it :)


but i did man drbdsetup on nodo1 and i se that there are 1 use cases,
in the first one the command is

drbdadm -- --clear-bitmap new-current-uuid resource

but in the second use case the commad is

drbdsetup device --clear-bitmap new-current-uuid

and by desription i ma in the second case, with disk shipping...

The necessary steps on the current active server are:

1. drbdsetup device new-current-uuid --clear-bitmap

2. Take the copy of the current active server. E.g. by pulling a disk
out of the RAID1 controller, or by copying with dd. You need to copy
the actual data, and the meta data.

3. drbdsetup device new-current-uuid


but this is not on
i am confused about this missing ...

hopefully i did not detroyed all the data...
