OCFS2 stability - tell me your story

We are looking for reviews of OCFS2 cluster file system from anyone who has experience with it. We are currently testing a setup with three servers accessing a single lun for use with a postfix mail platform, and we have found very few reviews or battle stories about the file system to validate its stability or usefulness. Any opinions are welcome and valued!

I worked with ocfs2 for a relatively short period of time on two RHEL4 hosts which shared a filesystem (housed on an EMC SAN). It was a snap to set up, and it worked as advertised. In our case, the ocfs2 filesystem was used to accommodate Oracle RAC.

I don't really have any "battle stories" to share. The project received hardware funding, entered a political tiff among whiteshirts, and was abruptly canceled.

Thanks anomie. It really is a snap to get running, compared to gfs and other cluster file systems out there which require a magic orb and three legs of toad boiled in virgin's blood to work properly. Anyone else?
