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


i've read http://www.drbd.org/users-guide/s-nested-lvm.html.

It seems that when you delegate/create logical volumes in step 11. you 
don't take into account, that in the backing storage for it (/dev/drbd0) 
  there is also metadata, 'cause you use internal. So if all of the disk 
space gets delegated, so does the part with internal metadata (at the 
end of drbd0).

I think in step 4. another logical volume should be created for metadata 
and referenced in drbd.conf in step 6.
