Hello Brian,

you probably _really_ want a HA cluster manager like pacemaker or
heartbeat dealing with this.

That said, you are facing 2 problems here with your setup:
a) mounting by UUID (or label) will see that information on both the MD
and DRBD level (and potentially even on the individual disks/partitions).
That is why your manual command sequence works, since you specify the
actual device to be used and not an UUID.
b) at the point in time your system processes the fstab DRBD is likely not
yet running anyway. Putting a "_netdev" into the mount options for this FS
might be all you need. Or not, thus the recommendation to use a cluster
