Yep the multi resources config seems to work reliably - Thank you very much for all your help and pointers ... One thing is I tried to stop drbd in the secondary node, and start again after a while, I saw the primary they sync the whole disk - I am pretty sure that there is no data written to the primary during the secondary off - Is it normal behavior? It is rather slow process anyway - I would think it auto detect and sync partially.
