Is it possible to use iscsi to create a red hat cluster?


I have a netapp fast 2xxx with iscsi support, with 2 san switches. Is it possible to use one iscsi lun with cluster purposes?

The idea is to create a clustered service which needs storage, the storage is provided by iscsi. The distribution should be red hat.

Has anyone succed on something like this or similar?

I was thinking about ext3 or ext4.

The filesystem is what needs to be balanced.

If you're using block-based shared storage you'll need a clustered filesystem
