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

This is the exact error message:

client1:# mount -t gfs /dev/gnbd/sharedvol /mnt
Trying to join cluster "lock_dlm", "testcluster:testfs"
dlm: Using TCP for communications
Joined cluster. Now mounting FS...
GFS: fsid=testcluster:testfs.4294867295: can't mount journal #4294867295
GFS: fsid=testcluster:testfs.4294867295: there are only 6 journals (0 - 5)

I can't find anyone else having issue. Can you figure out why is this happening?

When you say you want to share storage with the other 2 nodes, do you
mean only one node is physically connected to the storage and exports it
to the other 2?  Or do you mean that all three nodes are connected to
the same storage and they share the device?

If the former, gnbd is probably what you want.  If the latter, you
should see the same devices (/dev/sdX) on each node.  If you do not, you
have misconfigured your HBA or LUNs.  Once they all see the same
devices, you should be able to start clvmd and all 3 will see the
clustered volume group.
