Debian's NFS daemon (at one point in time, may still be true) does not die (sometimes) when stopped. Many posts, emails, webpages and the like, all point to the fact that Debian users need to follow a normal nfs stop with a kill.. otherwise nfs process will hang around on the inactive drbd node... Is this always necessary, or even still true? I know that I don't have a kill, and I use Debian, and I do not have these issues. Then again, I'm using kernel nfsd, perhaps that makes a difference... Anyhow, just a FYI.
