NFS Cluster Issue?

Hello Guys,

I have few doubts and I think this gonna be best place to discuss.
I have two REDHAT Cluster nodes.My Clustat says:
tuxbuddy# clustat

  Member Name                              Status
  ------ ----                              ------
  ed1-cluster                           Online, Local, rgmanager
  ed2-cluster                           Online, rgmanager

  Service Name         Owner (Last)                   State
  ------- ----         ----- ------                   -----
  bang                 ed2-cluster                 started
The Service "bang" is just a test script and its doing the failover successfully.

I have a third Server called Application Server which is outside the cluster.That Application server needs to be continously mounted on one of the cluster nodes.So for that someone advised me of NFS.

Now I have NFS installed on both the cluster nodes and also in Application Server.

What I think is When the first node failover the second one comes up.And NFS too dies(stop) on first node(Correct me if I am wrong?)
Now The connectivity between failed node and Application Server fails?

I want such a setup in which The Application Server remain connected to First node even if the first node does failover to the secondary cluster nodes.

Any Suggestions?
