Re: [Linux-cluster] how can I share a logical volume?




  The gnbd approach seems to fit, although don't quite undestand why this approach is better than the one I started with.
  However, I upgraded to kernel 2.6.24, cluster-2.03.00, ais, ... and followed instructions described in doc/min-gfs.txt in  ftp://sources.redhat.com/pub/cluster/releases/cluster-2.03.00.tar.gz.
  I reached the point in which I could gfs_mkfs, but I could not mount the new fs cause it complains about insufficient number of journals (I tried 2 and 4 journals) while having only one cluster node and the gnbd server.

  Kind regards

Did you setup the node with the storage as a gnbd server and the other
nodes as gnbd clients? I think this is what you want in order for the
nodes to all have block level access to the storage for clvmd and dlm to
run on top of.
