Whaaa, don't do that.
Do not have host names like master and slave.
Just immagine the phone call operator <-> support

Can you please replace the drbd ocf script
with the most recent one from git.drbd.org, and see if that helps?


if that still shows this behaviour,
please do (as root!)
( umask 0077 && mkdir /tmp/drbd.ocf.ra.debug && touch /tmp/drbd.ocf.ra.debug/log )

Then reproduce the issue, and send a gzip of that logfile my way.

(remove that logfile again, once your are done,
or it will fill up your /tmp/ ;-)
