Hi, Thanks for the answer. I found out that instead of creating the soft links, just copying the drbdadm and drbdsetup of the user/v9 directory to /sbin was working better. Now there is no version warning anymore. So I decided to purge the drbd8-utils package and installed the drbd-utils from source (now a full make install). I used the 8.9.4 version. Now everything works fine. So a pity that Ubuntu does not have a package of this version yet.

Usually all 8.4.x versions are compatible with 8.4.y tools, so I'm suprised you have connection errors. We did have a problem during the ubuntu 12.04 timeframe because Ubuntu skipped from DRBD 8.3 to 8.4 - - eventually they patched the tools to make them compatible with both. It took them and quite a bit of testing to fix that, so by all means please file a bug report against Ubuntu. Anyway, one option you have is to downgrade to one of the previous kernels (search for packages named "linux-.*-lts-.*"). Another option is to compile the tools on your own, it's quite easy on Ubuntu.
