[Linux-cluster] GFS Implementation Question



I have two questions about implementing a GFS cluster for NFS and
samba failover:

1. Should one mount the GFS filesystem through the cluster software or
through fstab. It would appear to me that you could mount the GFS
filesystem through fstab and just have the NFS and samba services
through the cluster manager so that one could move the service but
still have access to the underlying filesystem. Pros and Cons?

2. Does a GFS filesystem have to be created through LVM or will it all
work using normal disk devices accessed through EMC powerpath
software?

PS EMC has just released Powerpath 4.4 for RHEL4 and Suse EL.

Thanks.
