Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

both your dmesg output (quoted by Bernd)
and the mkfs errormessage (also quoted by Bernd)
  [please use the list reply function of your email client]

indicate that you try to mkfs on a Secondary.
that won't work.

note that "Secondary" or "Primary" is the current status in /proc/drbd,
NOT what you call the boxes, and not their intended role, but their
_actual_ status in the moment you issue the command.
