Hi, Tomasz
Thanks for your advice!

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.

In fact, I tried to write a distributed file system. And I want to use
iscsi to transmit date between client and stroage device.
