direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

>    meta-disk internal;
You currently have a filesystem on /dev/hda3. The above option causes
drbd to reserve some space for storing meta data, but there is no free
space on the volume (all is used by the filesystem).

Your options:
>  * use external meta data (recommended)
You use external meta data on a separate device:

>  * shrink that filesystem first
reduce the size of the filesystem, so that there is enough space for
the meta-data, and then enlarge the filesystem again (resize2fs)

>  * zero out the device (destroy the filesystem)
if you don't need the files one the filesystem, zero out the device
(dd), initialize drbd and then create an empty filesystem
