Thanks Stefan for your answer. I know partprobe - but does it work on a
mounted partition? Or is it more like:

- expand raid
- unmount part. on primary
- delete part. via fdisk and create new part
- on primary: drbdadm resize resource
- on primary: xfs_grow to grow the fs

=> done.

So the document
here is outdated?

Cause it is written that:
The affected resource's backing device must be one managed by a logical
volume management subsystem, such as LVM or EVMS.
