Just an update on this. After an almost Herculean struggle (somewhat
like the Augean Stables) with OCFS2 and CentOS 6.6 and CMAN/PACEMAKER
I now have a 2-node cluster set up and sharing a file system via

The problem was that the latest versions of ocfs2-tools does not ship
ocfs2_controld.cman but if you build from sources you get one of
those, even though the build actually fails later on. And,
importantly, things work, at least so far.

Now to build ctdb and Samba.

However, I suspect people's problem is not having the correct setup.
We will see.
