I need to migrate an existing server to a DRBD-Heartbeat cluster. The existing 
server unfortunately hasn't got enough diskspace available to accomodate the 
DRBD partition, so I need to reinstall it. My plan is to install the second 
node, configure DRBD on it with an absent second node and then completely 
reinstall the first node. This would require me to bring "up" the partition 
on the DRBD device without the other DRBD device on the other server being 
available until later. Is this possible?

Thank you,
