Active/passive suggests you want samba on one node (and thus DRBD in
master/slave configuration). CTDB is not complex, but CTDB is an active/active
configuration (AFAIK) and you'd need DRBD in dual-master configuration as well
as a cluster filesystem (for a lock file only, BTW).
CTDB replicates the configuration to the local nodes.
