I had installed RHEL5 on two x86_64 machine on the same LAN; afterwards I
had installed the RHEL5 cluster suite packege (cman-2.0.60-1.el5) and
I had also installed kmod-gfs-0.1.16-22.214.171.124_8.el5 and gfs-utils
I had crated a 2-node cluster and started the cman service OK on both nodes.
Now I tried to create a gfs partition with gfs_mkfs (with -p lock_dlm)
and mount it, and I got errors when trying to mount it (this errors
I made a second try with mkfs.gfs2 (also with -p lock_dlm) );
this time I **could** mounted the gfs2 partition succesfully.
My questions are:
- should I be able with this installation to create and mount a gfs
partition ? in case this is possible - what can be my mistale ?
- is gfs2 considered safe to work with ? or is it still experimental and
not recommended ? which features do I have in GFS2 which I don't have in
