Re: [Xen-users] XEN and clustering?

after finishing copy or after an external change (e.g. by action on the shared storage independently from host) on the raw device. It works like a charm, but I am not sure what would be the right solution with cluster and raw devices - GFS is fine with files, CLVM with LVMs, but I am not using LVM either (and CLVM has a drawback - snapshots are not supported).

Yeah, if you're sharing storage in a cluster, use CLVM. It ensures that things are sync'd between the nodes and that's.. uh, rather important.

CLVM doesn't support snapshots and pvmoves (others?) but you don't need them -- you can still snapshot within your domU's. Why the need to snapshot from dom0?
