No, I don't want to use a clustered filesystem. But I want the cluster to be able to lock the active Volume Group (activate exclusively) so that no concurrent access will be possible by activating the LVM Volume Group manually on different node bypassing the cluster, ending up with 2 times mounted FS on 2 different nodes. I don't like corrupted ext3/4 filesystems ;-)

Beside SCSI Locks or activating a cLVM Volume Gorup exclusively I don't know any mechanism to be sure to not mount a Volume twice on different servers.
