What are the symptoms ? I have  recently upgraded to pve 5 my pve4 +  drbd9 and it works quite well.

>Someone have answered to me that drbd module for proxmox 5 is in to-do

This is the drbd9 proxmox plugin, which was far from complete even in pve4, but is still working under pve5.

Linbit repo for 4 is still working in my setup, even with some quirks.

>Have someone try it? If yes which drbd-module version?

I recommend latest from the pve4 linbit repo: drbd kernel module (via dkms) 9.0.9 , with Drbd utils 9.1.1 .

I am still using the default drbd9 proxmox configuration with lvm-thin backend. But with a little modification in drbdmanage to avoid faulty free space calculation . See this lists for the details ... (or ask).
