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

I think I got it, and for the forum, here's what I did. I'm guessing
that somehow I wound up with a split brain condition within DRBD. Though
I could influence the cs state by starting drbd on each node in a
different order (which led me to conclude they WERE talking, just
refusing to connect), they would not complete the connection. I found on
the man page for drbdsetup, under the NET command, the option -D, and
the key phrase "nodes refuse to connect" ;)

The command I used was:

drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 NET C -D

The partitions are now connected and resyncing.
