[PVFS2-users] client configuration with a cluster of servers

I just start playing around with pvfs2, certainly a newbie here. I have
done a single host or cluster-based pvfs2 file system successfully.
However, there is one thing I am so wondered. That is, for a
cluster-based pvfs2 file system consisting of multiple nodes:
When the client try to mount this filesystem, what is the possible
choice to mount this pvfs2 filesystem.
The following runs fine:
mount -t pvfs2 pvfs2 /mnt/pvfs2 tcp://node1:3334/pvfs2-fs
but I am wondering, could it be
mount -t pvfs2 pvfs2 /mnt/pvfs2 tcp://node2:3334/pvfs2-fs #or
mount -t pvfs2 pvfs2 /mnt/pvfs2 tcp://node3:3334/pvfs2-fs
What are the difference between them as node1, node2 or node are all in
the cluster-based servers.
BTW, it seems tricky to tear down the client-side configuration. Could
somebody inform me what is
the correct order of stopping the client side configuration? I have
done them in this order:
The client node often crushes. Am I missing something or I should do in
a different way or order?
