A small comment on your upgrade process...

You do not need to reboot a machine to build the drbd modules for a new kernel.  First install your 
new kernel and then build drbd as shown below:

cd /usr/src
tar -xzf /path/to/drbd/source/drbd-0.7.17.tar.gz
cd drbd-0.7.17
make rpm KDIR=/usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-34.EL-x86_64
make rpm KDIR=/usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-34.EL-smp-x86_64

Adjust kernel path as needed.

You can then stop heartbeat and drbd, install the new rpms:

rpm -Fvh --force dist/RPMS/x86_64/drbd-0.7.17-1.x86_64.rpm
rpm -Fvh --force dist/RPMS/x86_64/drbd-debuginfo-0.7.14-1.x86_64.rpm

NOTE: --force only needed if using same drbd version but only upgrading kernel.

Now install the kernel modules

rpm -ivh dist/RPMS/x86_64/drbd-km*.rpm

Then reboot and your machine will come up ready.
