[PVE-User] GlusterFS VM failover

Hi there,

Mmmm, if you use /etc/fstab or glusterfs client, you will be accessing 
the gluster via FUSE.

And that s*cks.

I do a trick on my proxmox cluster, as well gluster cluster. I do have 
one 10Gb interface dedicated to gluster on each node, and another 1Gb 
interface dedicated to proxmox cluster. So, in hosts, my config is more 
or less this one.

#PROXMOX NODES pve01 pve02
#GLUSTER NODE  g01  g02

Until this point, completely normal, now, on the first node (pve01/g01) 
y put on hosts gluster

And this other hosts line on node pve02/g02 gluster

So, on proxmox GUI I mount gluster:VOLUMENAME. Each node mounts its own 
mountpoint and on the redhat cluster, the resource is called the same: 

Its a trick if your virtualization nodes are also storage nodes, which 
is my case.
Hope it helps.
