Thanks Mark. I currently run heartbeat from the distro init script, I was more interested in the drbd startup. I had originally tried using the Heartbeat master/slave configuration of drbd, using the heartbeat-supplied drbd OCF script, but there's some issues that need working out in heartbeat's master/slave resource handling. The master/slave config handles drbd startup and well as the primary/master and secondary/slave promotes and demotes. I was trying to think of a way to handle the restart of drbd outside of heartbeat to avoid the master/slave issues. drbd comes up fine via init scripts, just wanted a way to monitor and restart if necessary the drbd process, but outside of heartbeat. Make sense?
