it should be anything that is available on both machines and shared
among them, i have a small GFS partition for that on my vm cluster, but
i guess you can use NFS for that too.

that's nothing cluster specific but xen specific. it means that you use
a file as a "blockdevice" for your guest domain. (check xen docs)

even though the cookbooks suggested file images on a shared filesystem,
i simply used luns i carved from my SAN, which are then used as "phy"
blockdevices by the guests. Because i'm using multipathing on all
machines and thus have the luns in a consistent naming scheme on all
machines, it works pretty well for migration and failover.
enjoy,
johannes
