Steps 1, 2, and 3 are now in the bug description as well.

** Description changed:

- On a fresh install of Intrepid Server drbd is not started on system
- boot. However, manually running "/etc/init.d/drbd start" works fine. I
- noticed that the startup link in /etc/rc2.d/ is missing. After running
- "update-rc.d drbd defaults" the link is still missing, it only exists in
- rc3.d and rc5.d
+ The DRBD package is currently mentioned on one of the Ubuntu marketing pages:
+ http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/serveredition/technologies/storage
+ DRBD is used in HA clusters to provide a redundant storage device. In
+ Intrepid's current state, DRBD will not start after a reboot. Thus, the
+ underlying storage will become unavailable. This is not the standard
+ behaviour and is due to incorrect LSB headers in the init.d script (it's
+ using redhat style runlevels instead of debian). A fix to the LSB
+ headers will allow the package to correctly start on system boot.
+ This packaged is fixed in the development branch according to the
+ Launchpad janitor comment below. The relevant section:
+ This bug was fixed in the package drbd8 - 2:8.3.0-1ubuntu1
+   * Modify init script's default runlevels (LP: #282876):
+     - start by default on 2, 3, 4 and 5
+     - stop by default on 0, 1 and 6
+ 52 days prior I attached a debdiff patch that did the same:
+ http://launchpadlibrarian.net/20236785/drbd8_8.2.6-2ubuntu2.debdiff
