The quorum partitions shouldn't have a file system.  Cluster manager
will destroy all the data on those file systems.

Looks like your configuration is from clumanager on RHEL 2.1 AS (there
was no RHCS for RHEL 2.1).

The cluster alias IP is only for monitoring, not for services.  In any
case, you need to have different hostnames for the cluster members, the
alias IP, and any service IPs you intend to use.

Obligatory note: Please buy a power controller.

a. Your /etc/hosts needs to be fixed: rac1 will first resolve to
192.168.253.3, so that server would refuse the mount.  rac1 needs to be
one IP, and the .10 address needs to have its own hostname.

b. Your service needs its own IP address.  I'd scrap the cluster alias
IP and move it in to the service.

c. You don't have RAC2 as a listed client in the service.  So, if (a)
wasn't true, mounting from RAC2 will always fail because it's not in the
NFS ACL.

Good luck!
