Basic SAN LUN query


Hi guys,

We have created a LUN on SAN and assigned it to a server.

On top of it we have created 4 LVM shares which are holding the data.

Is it possible to add this LUN to some other server and access the data on LVM shares?(noob here)

Yes, but only one server will be able to access it at a time, unless you use a concurrent filesystem like GFS2

You need to implement clustering in order to achieve your goal. GFS or Oracle's OCFS2 (http://oss.oracle.com/projects/ocfs2/) are good options but there is another file system that you can use. Fraunhofer parallel file system FhGFS (http://www.fhgfs.com).
