Can't mount multiple GFS volumes?

I have a need for non contiguous storage and wish to mount multiple GFS logical volumes. However, I cannot seem to get past this following error and others related.

# mount -t gfs /dev/vgcomp/str1 /lvstr1
mount: File exists
[root@dev new]#

-Error Log

There are two physical drives attached to a FC network. I would like to have access to each on their own, not as part of a single volume group of storage.

Anyone have some ideas, things I can try, to start getting closer to something that works? I've tried all I can think of.

Let me know what info you need and I'll be happy to provide it of course.

Thank you.
