Using GFS2 in stretched clusters like this is not something that we
support or recommend. It might work in some circumstances, but it is
very complicated to ensure that recovery will work correctly in all
cases. If you don't have enough nodes at a site to allow quorum to be
established, then when communication fails between sites you must fence
those nodes or risk data corruption when communication is
re-established,
