[Linux-cluster] GFS/clvmd question

Why can't I mount my gfs logical volume on the second node in  the cluster?
I am creating a new GFS file system on an existing cluster.  Here is what I

1.  I determined I had space in an existing volume group (both nodes)
2.  I created my logical volume (node 1)
3.  I ran my gfs_mkfs (node 1)
4.  I mounted my new lv on node 1 only

Here is the error I get on node 2

# mount /gfs/new_mount
/sbin/mount.gfs: invalid device path "/dev/vggfs/new_lv"

I see that the logical volume is "inactive" on node2 and "ACTIVE" on node 1

inactive          '/dev/vgclgfs/new_lv' [25.00 GB] inherit

ACTIVE            '/dev/vgclgfs/new_lv' [25.00 GB] inherit

What do I need to do in order to make this logical volume active on node
2 ?
I thought that this would have happened automagically via clvmd, and not
have to be done manually.
