What you describe is exactly the setup I want, but wasn't able to
configure it yet. I was setting up a single gfs service including the
shared gfs resource of the mount point, but it starts only on one node
at once. Do I have to create one service for each node running on its
self failover domain? This sounds if it could work indeed. And do I need
additionally a lvm resource in that setup (I seem to remember that the
clvmd service was not chkconfig'ed "on" by default)?

Thanks for any help!
