What about the 3rd node? Is that not syncing or you have configured it as a
Diskless node?
Have you set the redundancy number to 3 in storage.cfg ?

Have you tried starting it on one of Diskfull nodes?

I think this is broken on PVE5 as well. I cannot browse the content of the
drbd storage in the webgui but I can see the total amount and the space
used in the summary tab. This used to work in the past but I'm unsure at
which stage it got broken.

The device is not writable: Permission denied
TASK ERROR: start failed:...

Here. It complains that the drbd volume is not in a writeable state for
some reason (read only?).Confirm its status with drbdtop and make the
necessary actions to switch it in the correct (writeable) state (Primary?).

If I try to backup:

The device is not writable: Permission denied
INFO: Plugin "PVE::Storage::Custom::LINSTORPlugin" is implementing an
older storage API, an upgrade is recommended
ERROR: Backup of VM 100 failed

This is failing due to the same reason as well ...
