hmmm, now I'm really confused.

This is what I'm doing on one node:

raid1 ----> lv -> drbd (r1) -> ocfs2 (mount point /xen_cluster/r1)
       \->  lv -> drbd (r2) -> ocfs2 (mount point /xen_cluster/r2)

so the VBD should look like

disk = [ 'file:/xen_cluster/r1/xennode-1/disk.img,xvda2,w',
         'file:/xen_cluster/r2/xennode-1/swap.img,xvda1,w', ]

as I've read in the drbd user guide on how to integrate drbd, ocfs2
and Xen. If I use that VBD file: type in the DomU config I can perform
live migration.

I don't understand what you're telling me here! 
what is /dev/XEN00/proxy?
