If I make the drbd disk smaller before resizing the filesystem properly to the smaller size than I wouldn't be able to access all of the filesystem via /dev/nbX anymore. Of course, if I increase the filesystem I should increase /dev/nbX first. > ! yes, it understands G. ^^ ah, here it is ;-) Andreas
