Re: [Linux-cluster] is necesary to to build GFS on top of LVM ?

You can use udev with scsi_id to map that lun always on the same place instead using lvm to find volumes.

There is another thing you should consider. It is cLVM not LVM.

was /dev/sdb may be /dev/sdc next time.  LVM allows
you to name your

is restarted.
There are similar problems when SCSI ID numbers get
swapped around.

yes, I know what you mean
I was looking for something like ext{2,3} label for
the filesystem but I could'n find anything for gfs :-(

so I am hopping that PowerPath kernel module always
identify the LUN with the same emcpower device :-)
if that is not true I will be forced to move to LVM
under GFS :-)
