This is unrelated to the third node being in standby.

    drbd_r3:0_demote_0 (node=godfrey, call=299, rc=6,
status=complete): not configured
    drbd_r2:0_demote_0 (node=godfrey, call=298, rc=6,
status=complete): not configured
    drbd_r1:0_demote_0 (node=godfrey, call=297, rc=6,
status=complete): not configured
    drbd_r0:0_demote_0 (node=godfrey, call=296, rc=6,
status=complete): not configured

For some reason drbd thinks its incorrectly configured.
Maybe the linbit guys can suggest something - but they'd likely want
to see some logs.
