RE: [Linux-cluster] GFS over DRBD

Yes, it does work with DRBD 8.0 or higher, but is limited to 2 nodes. The
DRBD pro version (not free) allows 3 nodes.

I didn't know about this feature.  It looks like this enables you to run GFS
without shared storage on 2 nodes (i.e. using two disks on two nodes that
are replicated as the device for GFS).

Is this what you were looking for?  I think DRBD only handles 2 nodes, but I
might be wrong in that.
