Depends on the type of cluster:
   - HA cluster: no problem as long as it's active/passive. That is:
one server mounts the FS and the other is on standby. If server 1
fails, it releases the FS and server2 mounts it.
   - shared/clustered filesystem: you'd have to go with CXFS (get in
touch with SGI). That is: both servers mount the filesystem at the
same time.
