I'm using LVM partitions as my underlying raw devices.

Can I expand the underlying filesystems with DRBD? That is, what if I 
bring DRBD down, expand the logical volume using lvextend, bring DRBD 
up, and then do a "resize2fs /dev/drbd0" (can't use the underlying 
partition here!).

Should I store my metadata on a separate partition in this case or will 
internal metadata work?
