I recommend updating this - others may
have been bit by the legacy article (after we confirm it really works).

[Linux-cluster] GFS Issues
I am new to the list but I was hoping to run a few questions by you. Hopefully
this is the correct forum for these questions.
We are in the process of evaluating GFS for an Oracle 9i RAC implementation.
I originally downloaded and installed this GFS-6.0.0-1.2.src.rpm using
this http://www.gyrate.org/misc/gfs.txt , the Admin Guide (from RedHat)
and a Sistina RAC install guide(from RedHat).
That worked to a degree in that I could mount one node on the system, but
all other nodes are blocked from mounting the gfs. This problem led me
to the 8 char limitation https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=127828
. My node names are unique in the first 8 chars (e.g. bwing.domain.com
and xwing.domain.com) .
First Attempt Environment
Kernel Version 2.4.21-15.ELsmp
Using GNBD to export an external scsi array
Used the example pool configs from the RAC install guide
manual fencing (status for all nodes is "Logged In")
2 nodes, 1 GNBD and dedicated lock_gulm server
Not sure what to do I looked for a newer version of GFS.
Now I am going through the steps I did before except now I am getting a
build error on the rpm-build.
