Hi,

Again me :-). I lost sight of this thread.
Just for clarification:

- Is it possible having vm's running on different nodes simultaneously in a cLVM environment (one LV per VM, each LV accessing the same pv and vg on a FC SAN) ? E.g. vm1 on node 1, vm2 on node 2.
- And is cLVM able to lock the lv, so that only one host has exclusive access to that lv ? So that the case if a second node tries to access the same lv corruption is prevented.

Sorry to insist, but this is important for me. This is my basic setup, and i'd like to know if it is possible. Because if not, i have to conceive something new.
