fsck should be run on /dev/drbd0. Whenever possible, drbd should be in a
connected state as well. /dev/sda6 will contain your filesystem, but
also contains 128 megs worth of meta data that drbd uses to keep track
of it's synchronization state.

Install drbd, then initialize your filesystem on it. The other way
around just means part of your filesystem gets overwritten.
