It will. However OCFS2 will only work on Protocol C (dual-Primary mode
requires synchronous replication by definition), so your original plan
of using protocol A or B is out.

Why do you need to compile though? I thought UEK2 shipped with DRBD.
Or has that not been made available for Oracle VM yet?
