You can't migrate it if it's got dependencies in rgmanager, because
other resources don't know how to migrate themselves.  For example,
migrating a file system is a very strange prospect; mount/umount won't
work...

* Put your GFS volume(s) in /etc/fstab
* Put the VM at the top level; you shouldn't need to reference
clusterfs.sh in cluster.conf in this case.

So - your configuration should be far simpler when using GFS:

>                         </clusterfs>
>                 </service>

...becomes:

      <vm name="VirtServ01" domain="failoverdomain1" autostart="1"/>


Obviously, you *cannot* migrate when using non-cluster file systems as
Xen domain backing stores.
