Re: [Linux-cluster] Duplicate Volumes, GFS fail over

As you might be able to tell, I started doing this but it's leading to too 
many other problems. I think I'll have to learn dual path's later as it's just 
going to end up being another level of learning on top of everything else I've 
taken on. 

I appreciate the help everyone gave me on dual path's and have kept your 
replies to work with at a later date.

Done, changed file.

This command won't run. Have to look into it.
