What I've done in the past is to simply setup a second DRBD resource, set it as a PV and then add that PV to the common VG. If you're building a 2-node cluster and you are running Primary/Primary, then yes, I think Clustered LVM is best (perhaps not *strictly* required). Given that each VM is on a dedicated LV, in theory you should not need clustered locking, though I think having CLVM is a good idea. It gives you the option of creating a GFS2 partition with the VMs XML config files, shared ISOs, etc. I always do this, so I should say that I've not looked at the feasibility of *not* using CLVM/GFS2.
