Simon, thank you so much. I saw a reference to that on the pages about xen and should have realized it would apply to any virtual environment. Doh! Writing to /dev/drbd/by-res/r1 did it and I now have my first vm ticking along nicely through DRBD and I'm a very happy camper. Thanks again for the prompt and excellent solution.
