How many nodes?

1) Are you certain that you have uniquely names all four filesystems?  You can
   use gfs_tool to verify that there are no duplicate names.

2) Is there an expired node that is not fenced holding a lock on that 
   filesystem?  gulm_tool will help there.

3) Did you ever have all 4 filesystems mounted at the same time on the same
   node?  i.e.  did it "all of a sudden" stop working or was it always

Restarting lock_gulmd on the master will cause one of the slaves to pick up
as master and the master to come back up as a slave.  Note that this only
works when you have a dedicated gulm server.  If you have an embedded master
server (a gulm server also mounting GFS) bad things will happen when the
server restarts.
