[DRBD-user] [Q] How do I use drbdsetup resize with LVM and no secondary?

I have drbd running atop LVM on a primary box. The secondary hardware 
does not exist yet. Can I still resize in this situation or would 
drbdsetup complain there is no corresponding hardware to talk to?

Second, will drbd be able to figure out how big the LVM is and just 
resize on the command "drbd resize" or do I need to specify it and if 
so, do I just use the size given by lvdisplay exactly as it is given? 
I am assuming drbd takes some tiny amount off for its metadata.
