[DRBD-user] Starting with only one node

Hi there,

I am planning on migrating a bunch of servers to use highly-available 
Xen via DRBD and Heartbeat. Since I want to minimize downtime for the 
production environment, it would be great if it would be possible to 
start installing one node, set up the DRBD devices there (with only one 
node), install the some Xen domU there on this drbd device, and then add 
the second DRBD node later (after freeing up another physical server by 
migrating it's guest instances to the new machine). Is there any way to 
do this?

Thanks for you advice,

Andreas.
