gfs does need a dedicated network ?
No, GFS needs *shared storage* to work. I don't know the details but I
know FC and SCSI work, and I'm pretty sure iSCSI does too. It wouldn't
take advantage of your current setup I don't think. drbd (as someone else
mentioned) might be an option there but I don't know.
DRBD looks nice but using it would mean add an extra network interface
and maybe an other switch (i don't think that vlan would work).
i'm going to take a closer look at gfs.
