Philipp, Thanks so much for all your efforts with this terrific application! I have a request for your next release. In drbd.conf you require the addresses of each of the nodes to be actual physical IP addresses. In drbd-6, I was able to use hostnames (which were ultimately defined in /etc/hosts), but I cannot seem to do that anymore with drbd-7. Now if I need to change the IP address of one of the nodes, I must edit 4 files. I must edit both /etc/hosts and /etc/drbd.conf on both nodes and I must edit multiple instances of the IP address in drbd.conf (one for each resource). Previously, I just changed /etc/hosts on both nodes, restarted, and I was done.
