Hi, Tomasz Thanks for your advice! > > Yes. Do not use non-distributed filesystems, like ext3, in a distributed > way (accessed by multiple machines, concurrently - precisely what you > are doing) - this will result in filesystem corruption, data loss etc. In fact, I already fixed the "parallel access" problem: at a exactly time, only one machine can write(create or write operation) to the device(ext3 filesystem). Now, I think the problem is when machine A have create the file, how to let other machine detect the file?

Yes, I think that's because "umount" will force the fs syncing through iscsi. > > > If you want to access files from multiple machines concurrently, use a > network file system, like NFS, or a distributed filesystem, like GFS2 or > OCFS2. In fact, I tried to write a distributed file system. And I want to use iscsi to transmit date between client and stroage device. > > > -- > Tomasz Chmielewski > http://wpkg.org > > > > -- wcw --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "open-iscsi" group.
