No, it does not require administrator interaction--in the service you would add a resource for the file system. This would move the file system between nodes.

Right.  That's the way I understood it to be.  Using ext3 would require us to have to umount and remount the file systems to the each host after the failure, though, correct?  In other words, would require administrator interaction.  GFS would do this automatically without impacting the users.

	You can use EXT3; you just can only mount the file system on one

	With GFS, you can export the same file system from *both* cluster nodes.
