I already have setup a cluster using DRBD 7.x and Hearteat R1 and I
use STONITH devices to manage splitbrain on it.

I was wondering if I use DRBD 8.x and Heartbeat R1 or R2 with GFS (or
OCFS2 whichever) on DRBD.. do I still need STONITH devices? or if one
node gets the plug pulled the other node will continue since it's
already in primary mode. And when the second node comes back it will
sync up and then go primary automatically.
