That’s what I tried, but what is not working, because the drbdmanage software detects its own name by doing os.uname().
And that reports the name from /etc/hostname, corresponding to the external interface. It gives me a half working cluster where I can see the drbd resources correctly but the quorum mechanism fails. (Each node seeing the others offline)
