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

How can I easily set a outdated disk back to UpToDate ?

Lets assume the situation where your primary data center burns down. 
First the network switch for the replication link burns and then the 
server itself. So first the standby disk is outdated by dopd. 2 minutes 
later the primary server dies and heartbeat ties to activate ressources 
- as intended(!). How your boss comes and says - primary data center 
burned down ? what the heck, we have a cluster start all engines in the 
other data center. Your data (some minutes old but outdated) in the 
second data center is ALL you have, so you have to remove the outdated 
flag so start the ressource.

How can someone remove the outdated flag ? drbdmeta ?
