I'm attempting to integrate heartbeat with drbd, and I'm a bit  
confused as to how to adapt the getting started guides to make it  
work for me.

My understanding is that if I make a heartbeat resource that looks  
like this:

node1 drbddisk::web Filesystem::/dev/drbd0::/mnt/ha httpd

...then /mnt/ha will be mounted or unmounted as required, which is  
cool if I actually wanted my drbd disk mounted. However, I'm planning  
on using Xen, and that is not the case. All I want out of heartbeat  
is to switch around whether a disk should be primary/secondary.  
(Well, and also to kick off/kill a domU when needed, but that  
configuration comes later.)

So.... do I need to rewrite the Filesystem heartbeat resource to  
something that doesn't require a mountpoint argument? Or am I missing
