[DRBD-user] cannot connect primary (remains StandAlone)

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

..I can't imagine why it gets that "address already in use" error. I
have 6 identically configured resources, resource 0 on port 7780,
resource 1 on port 7781 etc. Resources 0,1,2,4,5 work as expected, while
resource 3 gets this error. lsof -i does not show any used addresses, I
don't know how to find out who (except drbd itself) could use this

I'm simply looking for a safe way to restart this resource without
having to throw away the entire partition and start from scratch - I
don't mind if the secondary will need to fully re-synchronize.

still looking for help...

interface (two gigabit interfaces connected directly without going
through a switch), running bonding mode 0 (balance-rr). When watching
the counters and /proc/bond/bond0, everything seems to work ok for the
other drbd devices synced through the same connection. I get a
near-perfect load balancing and redundancy this way (at least so I hoped
- this is the first time I am trying this).

$ grep 98 /usr/include/asm/errno.h
#define EADDRINUSE      98      /* Address already in use */
