Re: [Linux-cluster] storage clustering without SAN



I thank you for your response...

On reading your response I get that  the cluster suite can be 
used independant of the File-system and is not tied to any particular 
file system.

So I should be able to share the local disk space of a node using
NFS/CIFS to other nodes with all nodes under RHCS, right?

Also in such a scenario ,a lock manager will not be needed isnt it ?
