Hi, has this been answered?

Basically, you could implement health metrics in newer Pacemaker versions.

However, I'd advise to not let diskless state get in the way of failover
decisions and implement monitoring for this instead. This way, you can
initiate manual failovers if appropriate.

Is there something I'm missing for drbd to tell pacemaker that the diskless node should no longer be the primary?
