mount.gfs: lock_dlm_join: gfs_controld error: -16/luci fails to start

OK, so I recently got a cluster up and running on one node. I have run into two problems:

1. After I configured the cluster, luci forced the node to restart. Upon restart, I was able to start cman, but was unable to start luci:

# service cman start
Starting cluster: [all services start.]

#service luci start
Starting luci: [FAILED]

What could be the problem here? I looked at cman_tool to verify that the node is part of the cluster (it is), but I just wanted to see it in luci. This isn't mentioned in any of the docs.

2. The impetus of having a cluster is so I can export a GFS partition using iSCSI. To do this, obviously I need a GFS partition. So I did:

# gfs_mkfs -t test-cluster:gfs1 -p lock_dlm -j 3 /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol03,

where LogVol03 is a logical volume I created while installing RHEL5.

This worked fine. However, when I tried to mount it, here's what happened:

# mount -t gfs /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol03 temp
/sbin/mount.gfs: lock_dlm_join: gfs_controld error: -16
/sbin/mount.gfs: error mounting lockproto lock_dlm

where temp (actually /mnt/temp, /mnt was the wd) is where I want to mount LogVol03. I was googling extensively and found somewhere that the new GFS kernel modules rpm (kmod-gfs-0.1.23-5.el5.x86_64.rpm) should fix this problem, but it didn't. I also moved the /lib/modules/<old_kernel_dir>/extra/gfs and gnbd directories into /lib/modules/<new_kernel_dir>/extra, and when that didn't work, into /lib/modules/<new_kernel_dir>/kernel/fs. What's the problem here?
