The list of directories you gave is the same as mine, on a
heartbeat+DRBD pair that has been in production for about a year.

I set symlinks from the original locations into the DRBD filesystem,
and  also keep a little tar file around to restore those symlinks when
updating Samba RPMs on the inactive machine.
