I recommend updating this - others may have been bit by the legacy article 
(after we confirm it really works).

        Subject:        [Linux-cluster] GFS Issues

I am new to the list but I was hoping to run a few questions by you. 
Hopefully this is the correct forum for these questions. 

We are in the process of evaluating GFS for an Oracle 9i RAC 

I originally downloaded and installed this GFS-6.0.0-1.2.src.rpm using 
this http://www.gyrate.org/misc/gfs.txt , the Admin Guide (from RedHat) 
and a Sistina RAC install guide(from RedHat). 

That worked to a degree in that I could mount one node on the system, but 
all other nodes are blocked from mounting the gfs. This problem led me to 
the 8 char limitation 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=127828 . My node 
names are unique in the first 8 chars (e.g. bwing.domain.com and 
xwing.domain.com) . 

First Attempt Environment 
 RedHat AS3 
 Kernel Version 2.4.21-15.ELsmp 
 Using GNBD to export an external scsi array 
 Used the example pool configs from the RAC install guide 
 manual fencing (status for all nodes is "Logged In") 
 2 nodes, 1 GNBD and dedicated lock_gulm server 
Not sure what to do I looked for a newer version of GFS. 

Now I am going through the steps I did before except now I am getting a 
build error on the rpm-build. 

rpmbuild --rebuild --target i686 
warning: `always_inline' attribute directive ignored 
warning: `always_inline' attribute directive ignored

 make[1]: *** [_mod_drivers] Error 2 
 make: *** [all] Error 2 
 error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.15039 (%build) 
 RPM build errors: 
     Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.15039 (%build) 
The warnings I think I can ignore, but I am not sure what to do about the 
build errors. 

New Version environment 
 RedHat AS3 
 Kernel version 2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp 

Got my GFS src rpm from 

Any help would be appreciated on either issue and please let me know if 
there is more information that is required.
