I start a new thread, as suggested in [1];

I would like to test the new Linbit repositorry for Proxmox Virtual
Environment [2], and I need some preliminary information before starting.

I refer to these statments from [1]:

For the cluster I will do the test on: it is a three node PVE 4.4-2
cluster, vm resides on two main nodes, while the third is dedicated to
provide quorum and DRBD9 replication only. I will start the test on this

First question. Is it possible to mix and match versions of drbdmanage
on the cluster?
I really would like to update the third node only at first, but now I
don't think it is possible, given the differences between proxmox
provided drbdmanage and linbit's one.

How can I proceed without impacting too much the two main nodes, and the
vms running on them?
