Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190204
Need the ability to add journals to existing gfs2 file systems
Last modified: 2010-01-11 22:36:03 EST
Description of problem:
There is an existing gfs_jadd command that allows you the ability to add support
for additional nodes by adding journals to the existing filesystem after growing
the filesystem. With the new on disk layout, gfs2 has the ability to add
journals without having to change the size of the filesystem. We need a
gfs2_jadd command or some other tool that provides the equivalent capabilities.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
gfs2_jadd uses the gfs2meta fs to add new journals to an existing gfs2 fs.
Changes checked into cvs HEAD.
Fixing product name. Cluster Suite components were integrated into Enterprise
