that should work, though i dont really understand why glfsd cant just
be a regular clone.
why would it need to be a master/slave?

also a possibility is to clone the glfsd group (ie. glfsd-1-GROUP) -
the trick is making the IPaddr agent factor in the clone number when
deciding which IP to start.
there should be something like that in IPaddr or IPaddr2 but it may
not be fully baked.

yes :-)

Hi, and thanks for the response.

The issue is this.  Glfs must be restricted from starting until at least one
of the glfsd clones has started.  The glfsd clones provide the backed
storage for the glfs mounts.  So glfsd doesn't really need to be a M/S.
This is just a way I came up with to make glfs wait for any single glfsd as
opposed to waiting for all glfsd clones.

What I really need is some order constraint ( or some other mechanism) that
is like the logic below (to use some C syntax)

If ( glfsd-1 || glfsd-2 || glfsd-3 || glfsd-4 ) then start glfs-clones

Thanks again for the reply
