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

However the DRBD resource itself does not exist anymore in the configuration, therefore: - The disk is not associated to any DRBD device (by-disk) - The DRBD resource does not exist anymore (by-res) Therefore why would there still be a need for the presence of those symbolic links which are now a false representation of the reality? -- Mathieu
