Further to this:
- It is best-practice to use LVM resources (HA-LVM) for non-clustered 
filesystems (ie. ext3, ext4, xfs, etc).  This helps to protect against 
accidentally mounting the filesystem on more than one node at a time.

As you have some GFS2, I assume you have clustered LVM and therefore it 
is as simple as adding LVM resources to the services.  See 

- The error you're experiencing where the service won't start is because 
the filesystem with the label "postfix" can't be found (as Emmanuel 
said).  See if you can see the missing device with the following command:
# blkid -c /dev/null

If there is no device with LABEL=postfix, you need to try to find which 
is the correct device, and add the label to the device with e2label.
