Hello,

In production You need automatic fencing, because when one node goes
down, Your GFS filesystem will be freezed(no ro/rw operations permited)
until You perform manual fencing. You could try to use new fence_scsi
agent, but You need to check if Your storage support Persistent
Reservations (SPC-2 or greater).
