Usually there is a reason, so taking a look at the syslogs is a good
idea. Maybe they are still used? Are the according drbd resources still
in use? Maybe executing "drbdmange resume-all" could help to triggere a

If you really want to get rid of them:
drbdmanage remove-resource -qf resname

the "-f/--force" simply kicks that resource out of drbdmanage's cluster
DB. You have to cleanup yourself. For example you want to lvremove the
device if it still exists. "-f" is a last resort.
