All I want to know is : does anyone know if the scripts shipped by default 
as part of the heartbeat 1.2.3 package handle this correctly(for drbd 
0.7.5)? No matter what is to be done to make the secondary node the 
primary, if the primary crashes or is shutdown?

In short, does /etc/ha.d/resource.d/drbddisk handle this scenario 
correctly? Yes, I should be going through the code to find out. Which is 
what I am doing. 

But in the meantime...
