If he does not resize the filesystem, then do all syncs become full syncs? There is some reluctance that doing mkfs on the /dev/drbd0 device ( or shrinking an existing partion) is necessary. Can you tell me what happens if we use 'internal metadata' with an existing file system ( ie one without the extra space at the end)? Thanks.
