Something is very confusing here. It happens when the new node 
already contains a (empty) control volume. (I do many test here, 
so I often reset/delete my test nodes with 'drbdmanage init').

The documentation states you need to execute add-node on a existing 
cluster node. If you do that, you get the information that this will 
destroy your existing control volume.

I guess this is because it automatically open ssh to the new node, so this
output is from the new node, but printed one the console of the old node.
Can you see the problem?
