Well, the direct answer is you don't need rgmanager (failover stuff) at
all to run GFS.  GFS is a client of the cluster infrastructure, and
really, it's a peer of rgmanager (though you can use rgmanager to mount
it if you want).

You do, however, need to run the cluster infrastructure stack
(openais/cman/dlm/fencing/etc.) to run GFS on multiple nodes if those
nodes are accessing the same software.
