Sorry, I tried posting this message this morning and something 
apparently didn't work out correctly... :(

Thanks so much for your suggestion. Even though Roland Kammerer pointed 
out the problem today, this helped me in understanding drbd quite a bit 
better as I've tried to figure out how to fix this yesterday.

Thank you so very much!!! This explains what happened. Unfortunately, I 
haven't really found any post about the drbd breaking between 5.1 and 
5.2. So, after your explanation, I'm quite happy to wait for a solution 
while temporarily keeping everyone on a 5.1 kernel Version of F30. And 
yes, it's only the utils and whatnot. If I do a cat /proc/drbd on my 
5.1.19-300 kernel Version (where drbd is still working, hence the 
connected VM), the output is the following:

version: 8.4.11 (api:1/proto:86-101)
srcversion: C27D50EE6C67ED861348AA6
3: cs:Connected ro:Primary/Secondary ds:UpToDate/UpToDate C r-----
     ns:1111972 nr:0 dw:1111972 dr:3637683 al:1293 bm:0 lo:0 pe:0 ua:0 
ap:0 ep:1 wo:f oos:0

Again, thank you guys so much! I was quite desperate to find out what's 
going on since we're depending on our VMs working most days. And I do 
hope I haven't bolloxed up the formatting of the e-mails quite so much 
and kind of done it right. Haven't ever posted in a mailing list before.

Regards, Jamie
