[DRBD-user] my setup, any pointers :-)?

So today, i've started a new setup from scratch and it's doing what i want..
It's a NFS + DRBD + heartbeat on Debian 5.
When i reboot, shutdown a machine or anything the failover works great.

But i need some auto split brain fixing.. I know it's a big no-no but in our
situation it's just needed because the servers won't be reachable for
anybody, and it's oke if some data get's lost. So what i would like that
when both nodes become primary (network failure) after that, the node with
the most changes will stay primary and the other one becomes secundary..
This works but.. it stays on unknown for the other node.. When i do a
drbdadm connect r0 on the primary it all works great.. like i want.

Is there anyway to connect the discs again after a split brain without me
putting in that command?

I have one other problem but it's not that important;
When i first start the both servers, the IP goes to the primary, so that's
great.. NFS starts, also great but the drbd disc won't get mounted.. In my
syslog there is no info about this. Or is this more a heartbeat question?

Thanks for anybody willing to spend some time on this prob. easy problem.
