I am running 8.0.6.  I had a complete failure of a server.  On reboot 
both my drbd nodes started a re-sync, and then jumped to 'stale', where 
they stuck indefinitely.

This upset linux-ha (2.1.2), and it took me a long time to get the 
system running again by starting each component in turn.

I will obviously upgrade to the latest 8.2.1.  But can anybody tell me 
if this will make a difference?  Was this a bug?

Thanks for any feedback,


SUSE 10.2 on Linux 64bit.
