More simply, there is no 2-node method of operation for GFS 6.0.  You
need three nodes / entitlements.  In this configuration, all nodes
should act as lock servers.

You can use Red Hat Cluster Manager for failover, too.  Having a GFS
entitlement includes Cluster Suite, IIRC.

You can also do-it-yourself with the linux-cluster project's code:

The new CMAN infrastructure will allow you to run GFS on only two nodes.
This will all be released sometime soon as a layered product for RHEL4.
