Re: R: [Xen-users] XCP and Openfiler as the storage

Hello FG,

sorry to bring up this question again, but I'm really curious about the fact the LUN might be accessed by more than one hypervisor at the same time.

Did you encounter the any problems like I described below?

Best regards,

thanks for your answer, however that raised another question.

I have several hypervisors, which means if I create one big LUN, I will need different servers to have access to the same LUN and as far as I know iSCSI LUNs are not supposed to be shared. Obviously, within that same LUN, each hypervisor would be accessing different Logical Volumes, but in case a new LV or a new snapshot is created, it would have to allocate space from the LUN and that could lead to a scenario where the other hypervisors do not see the new LV or the new snapshot.

Have you encountered this kind of problem, or do you have a different scenario (perhaps only one hypervisor for the big LUN for example)?
