Hi All ,

Need few clarification regarding GFS. 

I need to create a shared file system for our servers . The servers will write to the shared file system at the same time and there is no requirement for a cluster . 

Planning to use GFS but GFS requires cluster software to be running . My confusion here is If I just run the cluster software ( cman etc ) without creating a cluster , will I be able to configure and run GFS2. Also , is it possible to write to a GFS file system from many servers at the same time ? 

Will be great if somebody can clarify by doubts. 

Thanks in Advance
