direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

DRBD is working indeed, exactly as it should. Diskless is not a hoax. Your 
haupt2 really is not using any local storage right now. With DRBD, even a 
diskless node can be promoted to primary. But it will fail if the only 
remaining node with local storage falls out of the cluster.

Check dmesg or syslog to find out, why it had to drop the local storage.
