IMO the only reason to put a node in standby is if you want to reboot
the active node with no service interruption. For anything else,
including a reboot with service interruption (during maintenance
window), it's a no.
This is akin to "your mouse has moved, windows needs to be restarted".
Except the mouse thing is a joke whereas those "standby" clowns appear
to be serious.
With this particular failure, something in the Redhat patched kernel
(NFS?) does not release the DRBD filesystem. It happens when I put the
node in standby as well, the only difference is not messing up the RPM
database which isn't that hard to fix. Since I have several centos 6 +
DRBD + NFS + heartbeat R1 pairs running happily for years, I have to
conclude that centos 7 is simply the wrong tool for this particular job.
