Re: [Linux-cluster] Please correct me if I'm wrong, but...

Right.  That's the way I understood it to be.  Using ext3 would require us to have to umount and remount the file systems to the each host after the failure, though, correct?  In other words, would require administrator interaction.  GFS would do this automatically without impacting the users.

You can use EXT3; you just can only mount the file system on one
node at a time. 

With GFS, you can export the same file system from *both* cluster nodes.
