By exporting the local disk as eg. an aoe device to a second node, and 
running drbd on that second node.

Had to do that once to test a drbd configuration with only one san 
device, and a simple webserver that wouldn't be able to hold all the 
disks. Unfortunately the aoe connection would often timeout when the 
load was high, so I can't recommend doing it.
