Re: [Linux-cluster] CLVMD without GFS



Hola Rafael,
 
Thanks a lot, that'll avoid me going from scratch.
 
I'll have a look at them and keep you updated.

Please, check this link:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/cluster-devel/2009-June/msg00020.html

I found exactly the same problem as you, and i developed the
"lvm-cluster.sh" script to solve the needs I had. You can find the
script on the last message of the thread.

I submitted it to make it part of the main project, but i have no news
about that yet.

I hope this helps.

Cheers,

Rafael
