I recently installed the latest DRBD on Ubuntu 10.04 and would like to issue a one-step command to test failover to demonstrate to the powers that be the simplicity of failing over. In previous versions, there was /usr/lib/heartbeat/hb_takeover now I have to demote the primary and then promote the secondary manually.

Is there a new one-step command for this process that I'm not aware of?
