Re: [Linux-cluster] How do I get reiserfs and xfs filesystem options in system-config-cluster ?



As far as I know RHEL 6 doesn't include system-config-cluster anymore.  I suggest you use the luci interface to configure this.  When creating a new service in luci you can choose the filesystem resource, this resource handles 9 different filesystems including reiser and XFS as well an an autodetect option.  You can also manually edit the cluster.conf file to make these changes.  

You can use XFS with cluster, the point that others were trying to make is that XFS is not a shared filesystem like GFS and can only be mounted on one node at a time.
