Fine. That does not really change anything.

The reason you are having issues on this machine is NOT related to the fact
that a controller runs on it. From what you have shown so far, for me it
looks like a simple misconfiguration of your DRBD-setup on that machine.

That indeed sounds strange. If a satellite (once again, regardless where
the controller runs) has not the DRBD configuration I mentioned, 'drbdadm
<resource-name> status' (or any other sub-command) should not find the
resource, thus linstor should fail in deploying that resource.

Yes, we are testing with both setups, dedicated controller but also
controller + satellite combined node.

Did you only check the drbd.conf or also the
/etc/drbd.d/linstor-resources.res ?
