Thanks guys for the info. I understand that the secondary machine needs a /var 
too while in standby, and since it can't also mount it as part of the DRBD 
array, then it has to be a vanilla partition on both machines. Thanks for 
clearing that up.

But DRBD only replicates entire physical devices right? So I would have to 
re-partition... if so I can't do that.

But we could move mySQL files to /home or something as well. Not pretty but it 
should work.
