I don't understand your situation, but it the iSCSI -> GNBD -> GFS is
overly complex; part of the point of GFS is that you do not need a
"server" like that.

You should be able to to just use iSCSI from all GFS nodes directly,
without the intermediary GNBD server.

Just to note, the GNBD server and the single gulm master both present
single points of failure, as well.
