I may be being dense, but I really don't follow.

So you remove DRBD from your runlevel. Yet you do have
heartbeat/corosync in your runlevel, no?
Seeing as there are DRBD devices in your CIB, pacemaker will start DRBD.
I disbelieve you need to enumerate each last DRBD in your CIB just
because pacemaker wants to be in charge of starting/stopping DRBD.

Of course, whenever you set a node to standby, all your DRBDs will get
stopped. This may or may not be what you want, depending on your scenario.

Maybe I'm missing some other obvious issue.
