Re: [Xen-users] cluster filesystems

Quoting Brock Edward Palen <brockp@xxxxxxxxx>:
The ocfs2 website says that ocfs2 was pushed into the main line 2.6.16
did this happen?  and if so has anyone tried kernel.org ocfs2 with
xen? This would make my upgrade to 3 much faster :)

I'm running Xen 3.0.2 using the 2.6.16 kernel on Ubuntu Dapper
(the upcoming release). Using a shared ocfs2 volume in multiple
domU's seem to work fine, although I have not extensively tested
(performance?) it yet.

Xen normally refuses to start a domU with a volume that is already
in use (mounted) elsewhere, but you can force it with an exclamation
point. Example:
 disk = ['phy:/dev/vg1/jetU,hda1,w', 'phy:/dev/vg1/shared,hdb1,w!']

One last thing, I did compile Xen Xen/Linux from source; I don't
know if the binary distribution includes ocfs2 support.
