When disk state is marked as inconsistent by DRBD (i.e. when the primary fails during the initial sync, secondary's disk remains inconsistent). I promoted the secondary and now it's my primary. So, here's the question. How dangerous is this to make a server with inconsistent disk as the primary? Is the data really unusable when the disk is marked as inconsistent or is it just a safety feature?
