Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Not sure if you already went through this, but it may help you find out where the problem is.

drbdadm -d adjust RESOURCE_NAME

This will show you what is needed to actually get drbd ready to work according to your drbd.conf.

[root at sauron /]# drbdadm -d adjust export
/sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 disk /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb3 0 --on-io-error=detach
/sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 syncer --rate=60M --group=1 --al-extents=257
/sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 net C

 From the sample above you can then try running each one of the commands by hand to try to figure 
out which is failing.

/sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 disk /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb3 0 --on-io-error=detach
/sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 syncer --rate=60M --group=1 --al-extents=257
/sbin/drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 net C
