well, o.k. we also had this problem once. So follow this procedure:

1.) devices shall be disconnectd

2.) make the drbd resource on the system which has the correct data primary 
and the other secondary

3.) connect the drbd resource

4.) now, invalidating the secondary should cause a full sync

As far as I remember, we did this kind of procedure. Though, I'm describing it 
from my memory and I don't have any free drbd resource where I could test 
this know.
