Re: [linux-lvm] Sharing LVM's via NFS on Redhat 8.0

If you want to share the actual block devices, look into HyperSCSI.  It allows 
you to "share" out your block devices, and clients can access them as local 
SCSI interfaces.  2 clients can access the same LVM group concurrently, just 
as if they were both on the same system.
