There is a DRBD-users mailing list, but I suspect there is a lot of 
overlap here.

Wrong assumption (though a common one). The idea of a test cluster is to 
get things working. Fencing is a _critical_ part of this. When I started 
clustering, I made the exact same assumption. I wasted weeks trying to 
get even basic stuff working.

Only when I went back and added fencing did everything start to work. 
Please take the time to set it up now!

The order I recommend is;

1. Get pacemaker/corosync working.
2. Configure and test stonith
3. Setup DRBD and use 'crm-fence-peer.sh' fence handler and set the 
fence policy to 'resource-and-stonith'.
4. Configure resources

It's amazing how oddly and unpredictably things break without _working_
