nfs failover with shared SAN storage

    i'm trying to deploy 3 nfs servers who all have a common file system mounted with ocfs2 to a SAN (server's "A", "B", and "C") and i'm not sure that i am on the correct path to configure redundancy/failover.

    i don't need to synchronize the storage across servers because the data already lives on the SAN.

    i need to ensure that there's a server NFS node available to the clients at all times and if a node goes down, the clients are aware and can jump to another node.

     /  |  \
    can anyone point me in the right direction with this? i think there's something on the client side i need to tinker with but i'm not totally sure. i donm't think ha-nfs is what i need but again, i'm not totally certain.
