I don't think that is a good idea. Nobody starts up the satellite
manually, it is started by systemd (or whatever flavor one prefers). And
micro-packaging a linstor-satellite-drbd/linstor-satellite-nodrbd is a
bad idea.

The controller has all the knowledge whether a given satellite needs
DRBD or not. And depending on that, the controller should initiate that
