direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

DRBD knows absolutely nothing about filesystems or users or permissions.
It only knows about blocks. Each block is dutifully mirrored between
servers, but the data on that block is entirely up to the host. If
you're having filesystem permission problems it most definitely is an
error in NFS, Samba, et. al.
