It is definitely possible to have separate MGS nodes for different filesystems. It is even
possible for clients to connect to multiple separate MGS nodes. However, it is not
possible to have multiple MGS services on the same node.

In the document, it's said MGS is universal in a cluster. But I want to setup another
MGS which is completely independent from the original one since I am still trying to
rescue the original one and don't want the second one to make things more complicated.
The reason why I need the second one is because, before I successfully restore the
original one, I don't have enough space in a single RAID/machine. As a result, I need
to combine several smaller ones.
I guess by "universal MGS", it just means we don't need another MGS to
service multiple lustre filesystems. By if I don't care it, I can still setup another
MGS to service other lustre filesytems in my case. Can anybody confirm this? Thanks a
