That's how I ran into the problems I mentioned. In the near future I will
have to setup approx. 30TB of storage that needs to be available for 5-10
servers. The problem is that OCFS2 seems to be just plain broken, the web
configuration tool described in the RHEL 5 manual for GFS is no longer
present in Fedora and the cluster configuration tool doesn't work because
it tries to call command line tools in the wrong locations.
What I'm wondering is that if fedora is the basis for RHEL then what are
the plans for RHEL 6 regarding these technologies. AFAIK fedora 11 will
form the basis for that but right now GFS and/or clustering in general
seems to suffer from bit-rot.
I'm just surprised that GFS is a cornerstone of RHEL 5 but now seems to be
basically unmaintained or is the RHEL team maintaining forked versions of
