I'm trying to build an high available nfs server with drbd and pacemaker. I
have some doubts related to the devices and the drbd resource. Following
the guide "NFS on RHEL6" on the linbit site, I found that under the drbd
resource there is a Logical Volume:

PV -> VG -> LV -> DRBD resource ....

Now i have a large storage server with a /dev/sda of 72TB. I would use 3TB
for nfs, so with gparted I created /dev/sda1 of 3TB. My question is: should
I use lvm?Reading this
turns out that "if you use LVM across hard drives you may loose all your
data when only one drive fails."
and this is my case, so is this a good idea? Considering that i don't need
to resize /dev/sda1, can I avoid the use of LVM?
