Some more info here:


So storage2 does not know why the other end disappeared and tries to use
pacemaker to prevent storage1 from ever becoming a primary.  Only when
it comes back online and gets in sync it is allowed to start again as a
pacemaker resource by a second script:

  after-resync-target "/usr/lib/drbd/crm-unfence-peer.sh";
