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


one of

fuser -mv /dev/drbd1
grep drbd1 /proc/mounts

will most likely turn up a fairly obvious result. You probably either have 
your device mounted, or (C)LVM has a DRBD-backed Volume Group active.
