The relevant change is likely to be this one:

Take this constraint in your config:
          <rsc_order id="cyrus_drbd_after_address" from="cyrus_drbd"
action="promote" type="after" to="cyrus_address" to_action="start"/>

Prior to the change, if cyrus_address couldn't be started then
cyrus_drbd would still be promoted.  To prevent cyrus_drbd from
starting in such situations one had to add score=INFINITY to the

We decided that this was counter intuitive and changed the default.

btw. are you sure you dont mean the other way around?  promote drbd
then add the address?

Resource ordering is described in detail here:

Now, in your case named_address is running (and needs to be moved) but
named_drbd_node is not master anywhere.  Which currently means it
can't be demoted which means named_address can't be stopped (which is

Most people have it the other way around (as suggested above) so there
is no problem, but this should also work.  I need to think a little on
