Installing GFS consists of installing Red Hat GFS RPMs on nodes in a Red Hat cluster. Before installing the RPMs, make sure of the following:
The cluster nodes meet the system requirements described in this chapter.
You have noted the key characteristics of your GFS configuration (refer to Section 1.5, “Before Setting Up GFS”).
The correct Red Hat Cluster Suite software is installed in the cluster.
For information on insalling RPMS for Red Hat Cluster Suite and Red Hat GFS, see Configuring and Managing a Red Hat Cluster. If you have already installed the appropriate Red Hat Cluster Suite RPMs, follow the procedures that pertain to installing the Red Hat GFS RPMs.
