Can you really have primary/primary with ext3 as the filesystem? I though there would be problems 
since that is not a cluster file system. Does DRBD take care of the kernel issues and allows two 
nodes to read/write as active/active using ext3? or maybe you just mount read/write in one node and 
read only in the second node but they are both drbd primaries?

It was my understanding that you needed GFS or OCFS for such configuration. Am i wrong?
