Nice idea ! Let's try this on vm7 :
# iptables -A INPUT -i eth1.1007 -p tcp --match multiport --dports 7000:7030 -j DROP
Same for outbound (to be sure) :
# iptables -A OUTPUT -o eth1.1007 -p tcp --match multiport --dports 7000:7030 -j

root at vm4:~# cat /var/lib/drbd.d/drbdmanage_vm-104-disk-1.res
	   connection-mesh {
      		hosts vm7 vm4;
    on vm7 {
        node-id 1;

So, this ressource (vm104 disk 1) use port 7007.

Check :
root at vm4:~# nmap -p7007 vm7
7007/tcp filtered afs3-fileserver

TCP sessions were still opened so I killed them all with tcpkill :
root at vm4:~# tcpkill -i eth1.1007 portrange 7000-7030

All TCP sessions disapeard from netstat and my ressources are gone to connecting

But situation isn't really better ... drbd processes are still blocked on an
undetermined I/O. I'll wait a few hours to see if something finally timeout on
the server and if it's not the case, I'll resignate and reboot the whole box.
(and UPGRADE !).

Thanks for your help !
