Re: [Xen-users] XEN+CLVM+GFS


why not give every domU a SAN device ? no need for CLVM and GFS in this 
case. You should just think about how to get a consistent naming of the 
SAN devices, e.g. with multipathd oder this scsi persistent names package 
(can't recall the name now, if you need it, I can look it up again).

What is the benefit of GFS ? I did a GFS cluster recently, it is 
definitively NOT trivial to setup and keep running and a single mistake 
will guaranteed CRASH all nodes in your GFS cluster. We tested that rather 
a lot ...


PS: I didn't try GFS+XEN ...
