Do you mean you are using pacemaker+corosync to manage services other
than nfs-ganesha and you loose those resources when ganesha.sh
add/delete operation is performed? Could you please provide details
about those resources affected?

Its perfectly acceptable. Ganesha cluster is a subset of Gluster trusted
storage pool. So you can increase the capacity of gluster volume without
the need to alter the nfs-ganesha cluster.

I am not sure if any one has tried out that. We strongly recommend to
use the ganesha.sh script as there could be additions/fixes which went
in that script w.r.t cluster configuration. You may have to double-check
the resources and constraints every time you try to configure them
manually. Do you see any difference between using the script and the
