well, check your installation then.

it seems like your drbdsetup is more recent than your drbd module.
API 63 is 0.6.7 and 8,
API 64 since 0.6.9 ...
did you do an update,
and forgot to unload/reload the module?

for now, revert to the 0.6.7 drbdsetup, and use it to shut
down cleanly, remove the module, and do your update, this time cleanly.

AND NOTE: 0.6.7 had a lifetime of exatly one week, and had a bug
with the sync-group functionality (which was newly introduced then)

we are at 0.6.11 meanwhile ...
