I am making a proposal for a Linux HA system with two identical servers etc. I
want to be ready for future upgrades to the harddisk system. So I want use LVM
beneth DRBD. My hope is then if we get additional disks in the servers, that I
can use LVM to expand the DRBD partition and have DRBD mirror the larger
partition. All without destroying the filesystem, and preferably without

Do you have any advice of which filesystem is best suited for this? It should
support online resizing, work well with DRDB and PostgresQL.
