You should always act on the container, so the ms in this case (or the
clone, or the group).

All crm resource stop <resource> does is set the target-role... so there
is something else going on.

You can run crm with the -d argument to get more information about what
it does, and -dR to get a full trace of all the commands it executes.

Grepping the logs on the DC node (see crm status output) will probably
get you more hints as well.

Finally, you can run "crm report" or hb_report to collect and analyse
the logs on all your nodes, to get a better overview of what is going on
in the cluster.

But really, I would recommend looking at a tutorial or guide for setting
up DRBD in a pacemaker cluster, as there are multiple steps that have to
be correct for it to work.
