Using conga, to generate cluster.conf file i saw by default, when is choosen
GFS File system, in cluster.conf file is generated fsid="35790" and
fstype="gfs" vor a gfs volume.
[snip from my cluster.conf]
clusterfs device="/dev/myvg1/mylv1" force_unmount="0"
fsid="35790" fstype="gfs" mountpoint="/var/www/html
With this config, mylv1 has failed to mount because /dev/myvg1/mylv1 is gfs2
formatted. In this case, I changed manually in cluster.conf
fstype="gfs2" (leaving unchanged fsid="35790"), and now mylv1 is mounted
- GFS2 has the same fsid as GFS? If not, which value is correct?
- On centos-5.2, i saw that by default is used GFS2, which many peoples says
that is not good for production use. Is this true or in centos/rhel-5.2 this
has been changed and GFS2 is enough mature to be considered "production
