I have experienced a data loss with drbd with this steps :

2 nodes with drbd synchronised providing nfsd

node 1 active

node 1 shutdown

node 2 takeover 

so far all is ok

node 1 stay down for 3 weeks

node 2 is shutdown

node 1 is started
-> here node 1 become primary with data 3 weeks old.

node 2 is started 
-> node 2 become secondary and all current data are overwritted with 
3 weeks old data.

Is there a way for node 2 to refuse synchronisation with older data ?
