You can not change the heartbeat_rate or allowed_misses for lock_gulmd 
while the cluster is active.  In order to make the changes take effect, 
you will have to:

1. unmount all GFS in the cluster
2. stop all lock_gulmd in the cluster
3. modify ccs
4. start lock_gulmd
5. mount gfs

Note.  there is a bug that requires you to have to specify the
heartbeat_rate as a floating point number.  (see

Changing these values while the cluster is up will prevent new instances of
lock_gulmd (for both the clients and servers) from connecting to the active 
instance of the cluster, but it should not cause the running nodes to be
