First, make sure stonith is enabled (and tested!) in pacemaker. Then you
configure drbd to use 'fencing resource-and-stonith' (resource; alone
isn't enough) and set the 'fence-handler' to be the 'crm-fence-peer.sh'
script (and crm-unfence-peer.sh for after resync).

This is the only way to avoid split-brains.
