Package: virtualbox-ose
Version: 1.5.4-dfsg-4
Severity: wishlist

Hi Michael,

at the moment we face the problem that we need to test a cluster FS
implementation within virtualbox, therefore we need to share a storage
device between several guests. As current workaround we use a Linux
guest providing an iscsi target. Things would be much more simple if
virtualbox would allow to share one disk image between several guest

Thanks in advance for implementing this feature,
