ah, but you will likely run into some "out of vmallocatable memory"
condition if you try to use several devices that large.

two drbd with ca. 2TB each will do, probably.  three is unlikely, and
four of that size is probably not possible currently.

this is a known problem, and will eventually be fixed.
it does not seem very hard to fix, but as long as we have the impression
that "the average drbd user" does not use several TB of storage, fixing
that has low priority...
