Hi there!

I happen to have a whole scsi disk on each cluster node, which is going
to completely be managed by drbd.

What I was wondering is whether it is better not to partition the disk
and use 
        disk	/dev/sdb1
        meta-disk internal
or going for a 
        disk	/dev/sdb
        meta-disk internal
or something else, maybe multiple partitions, one for meta-disk and the
other for actual data.
I'm sure that the second solution works (that's what I'm using) but I'm
not sure about which choice is better as for

What do you think?
