I have a two node cluster setup with Pacemaker and DRBD to run 
Postgres.  For whatever reason, drbd is almost always in an inconsistent 
state everyday multiple times a day doing a big sync.  Why is this 

Both nodes are Ubuntu 10.04.1 running drbd 8.3.7-1ubuntu2.1.

drbd status:
version: 8.3.7 (api:88/proto:86-91)
