Public bug reported:

Ubuntu 12.04.3 is due in august and, as part of the  LTS Enablement Stack program, it will ship with Raring's kernel 3.8
This new kernel includes DRBD v8.4.2, but the DRBD utils shipped in Precise are version 8.3.11. They will not work with the new kernel: please check Bug #1132302 for the expected symptoms.

Would you please upload a package for DRBD utils v8.4.x for use with the backported kernel ?
The tools v8.3 must remain available too, so the new package should named something else, maybe drbd8-utils-lts-raring .

If this cannot be done in time for 12.04.3 (or not at all), I suggest it
should be clearly stated in the release notes that DRBD users using the
12.04.3 CD/DVD should revert to the Quantal LTS Enablement Stack. The
Quantal kernel has DRBD 8.3.13 which should work fine with the current

Lionel Sausin.
