I am unable to create metadata on tertiary node

# drbdadm --stacked create-md r0-1

al_offset 4397912182784
bm_offset 4397777969152

Found ext3 filesystem
  4294836152 kB data area apparently used
  4294705048 kB left usable by current configuration

Device size would be truncated, which
would corrupt data and result in
'access beyond end of device' errors.
You need to either
   * use external meta data (recommended)
   * shrink that filesystem first
   * zero out the device (destroy the filesystem)
Operation refused.

Command 'drbdmeta 10 v08 /dev/drbd0 internal create-md' terminated with
exit code 40
drbdadm create-md r0-1: exited with code 40

Can you please guide me in this regard...

Best Regards,

Salman Riaz Siddiqui.
