Hi Everyone,

I am consider such a setup where I export an iSCSI target to a Xen node. This Xen node will then use the iSCSI block device as an LVM PV, and create lots of LVs for DomU use.

I was wondering if anyone could make me aware of any special consideration I would need to take. I've posted a similar question to the LVM list to ask for further tips more specific to LVM.

Am I barking down the wrong path here? I know it would be very easy to just an NFS server and use image files, but this will be for a large scale DomU hosting so this isn't really an option. Additionally, if I wanted to make the LVM VG visible to multiple Xen nodes, is it just a matter of running CLVM on each Xen node? Please keep in mind that only one Xen node will be using an LV at any one time (so no need for GFS, I believe)

Any help or tips would be appreciated
