seems like some constraints like:

   <rsc_order id="drbd_www_before_fs1" from="clone_ocfs2_www" 
action="start" to="ms_drbd_www" to_action="promote"/>
   <rsc_colocation id="fs1:0_on_drbd_www" to="ms_drbd_www" 
to_role="master" from="ocfs2_www:0" score="infinity"/>
   <rsc_colocation id="fs1:1_on_drbd_www" to="ms_drbd_www" 
to_role="master" from="ocfs2_www:1" score="infinity"/>

solve this issue.

i guess that the problem lies within > from="ocfs2_www:X" <.

can any1 confirm this behavoiur and tell me, why
   <rsc_colocation id="fs1:1_on_drbd_www" to="ms_drbd_www" 
to_role="master" from="ocfs2_www" score="infinity"/>

somehow does not seem to work?
