One question: did you read the various messages following your first
question?

Please understand the differende between a LVM volume and a (exported or
local) filesystem.

How do you want to share a LV which is not on a scsi or fc device? Never
heard about shared ide...;-))) Do you want to share a device or the data on the
device???

CU Lars.
