@Digimer: Ooops. Sorry. Forgot that this list is international. :-D

My question was if some 8.3.11rc1-0 of an old system (shall become the 
new Primary) could be combined with a fresh installed 8.3.11-0 (the 
future Secondary). I could update the old system before but I am a bit 
afraid because it does not have a backup of what's on the DRBD device.

I can combine both? I'd like to update the old right in the moment when 
I know both DRBD nodes are in sync.

But to sync it before, right?
