In my last project at work, I had to replace NFS with GFS2 and Clustering. So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a Red Hat cluster with GFS2. I will also show you how to optimize GFS2 performance in the next HowTo, because you will quickly notice some loss of performance until you do a little optimization first.I will 1st show you how do build a Cluster with GFS2 on the Command Line and in the next tutorial I will show you how to do the same thing using Conga. In this tutorial I am using 3 CentOS Virtual Machines in VMware ESX 3.5. For the GFS2 File System I am using a vmdk built with the thick option, that is shared among all the Virtual Machines. You also can use iscsi or fiber... This option is up to you.
