Right but it would be useful to understand why this happened.

Here is the REAL error log I think (some obscure Java error ;-):


And the one you asked for (Access to deleted resource) :

Right, restarting linstor-satellite reset everything in the right state.

I had to issue :
systemctl restart linstor-satellite

but on BOTH nodes.

Resource was in primary on the surviving node. I tried to delete it on secondary
Tried to delete a primary resource failed with 'Resource is mounted/in use.'.
That's the correct behavior I think ;-)

Even if there as been a little glitch in the force, cluster is now back in a
correct state for me and without rebooting, that's far better than drbdmanage's
dbus crashes ;-)
