I would like to know if it's possible to add drbd on an existing device
without loosing existing data.

I tried it like this:

I made an lvm device
mkfs it
mount it and put data
umount it
start drbd with nb0 on top of this lvm device
mount nb0

and I can show the content of the already filled lvm device.

but I'm not sure this is enough to work and I don't understand how this
could be possible???
