Description Corey Marthaler 2007-09-28 15:07:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Without lockgulm around in rhel5 anymore, it seems silly to have to enter a lock
protocol everytime I mkfs a new gfs filesystem.

From the man page:
"LockProtoName is the name of the  locking  protocol to use.  The locking
protocol should be lock_dlm for a clustered file system..."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 4 Abhijith Das 2007-10-17 16:17:52 EDT
committed fix to cvs HEAD and RHEL5 to make lock_dlm the default lock protocol
in mkfs.gfs and mkfs.gfs2.
Comment 6 Corey Marthaler 2007-12-19 17:05:48 EST
fixed verified in gfs-utils-0.1.15-1.el5.
