Hi DRBD users,

I've been trying to use DRBD9 on a Debian Jessie cluster but I run into 
the following issue when running drbdmanage init 10.x.x.x:

Error: External command failed:
drbdsetup new-resource .drbdctrl 0
Command output:
Command exited with exit_code 20

Initialization failed

I did the following:

vgcreate drbdpool /dev/sdb (didn't change /etc/drbdmanage.cfg)

drbdmanage init 10.x.x.x

I saw an older thread on this mailing with the same exact issue, but 
without any response. Any ideas what could be the issue ?

I'm using drbd-utils 9.1.0, drbdmanage 0.99.11 and drbd-dkms 9.0.9
