Mounting /dev/hda7 should work fine, if your DRBD nodes are synced. As
DRBD metadata is stored in the end of partition after filesystem, so
it should work fine. Although, if you tried to re-enable DRBD on both nodes,
a split brain might occur.

I'm not much experienced with DRBD. I hope I'm correct.
