No. I already told you so.

DRBD resource agents sets master scores based on disk state. If you
statically override this decision you are risking promoting stale copy
which means data loss (I do not know if agent allows it, hopefully not;
but then it will continue to attempt to promote wrong copy and
eventually fail). But if you insist, it is documented:


Also statically biasing one single node means workload will be relocated
every time node becomes available, which usually implies additional
downtime. That is something normally avoided (which is why resource
stickiness exists).
