What I did a few days ago was to create a vmware disk for each OCFS2 filesystem, and store it with one of the VM nodes. Then, add that disk to each additional VM. When you add it, use a separate SCSI host number. In other words, if the OS is on SCSI 0:0, make the disk SCSI 1:0, or some arbitrary other HBA number. Then you can go to each hosts second VM SCSI device and modify it to be shared, and of type Physical (if I remember correctly). At that point, it works fine.

Before I go into any of the detailed errors we are experiencing I first wanted to ask everyone if they have successfully configured this solution? We would be interested to find out what needs to be set at the VMware level (RDM, VMFS, NICS etc) and what needs to be configured at the O/S level. We have a LUN on our SAN that we have presented to our VMware hosts that we are using for this. Any help would be greatly appreciated! _______________________________________________ Ocfs2-users mailing list Ocfs2email@example.com http://oss.oracle.com/mailman/listinfo/ocfs2-users
