Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Lokk into 'man drbd.conf'

minor-count count
      count may be a number from 1 to 255.

      Use minor-count if you want to define more resources later with‐
      out reloading the DRBD kernel module.  Per  default  the  module
      loads  with  exactly as many devices as configured in this file.
      Builtin default for module is 2, and 8  for  monolithic  kernel.
      For  monolithic  kernel  minor-count is ignored, and you have to
      pass a kernel boot parameter  drbd.minor_count=count  to  change
      the default.
