I have a two node cluster connected to a fibre channel SAN. I need to run SAMBA and SSH as clustered services. Both of these services will need to access my SAN via a GFS mount.
Should I manually mount the GFS file system individually on both nodes by running “mount –t gfs /dev/sdb2 /mountpoint”? Or can I add the GFS mount as a resource in Cluster Suite, and then assign that resource to both services? If I assign it to both services, what happens when one service needs to restart? Will the GFS mount be broken, which in turn will cause the other service to fail?
Thanks for any suggestions.
