YES. Actually, I should have told you, I have the storage local to the host of the 2 vm machines. Meaning 1 Physical host w/250GB HD, and 2 VM machines will be created on top of it and would like to share 100gb to both the VM machines. Since there are many options i've read, like SAN, NAS, NFS, iSCSI, i'd like to go with iSCSI.
ok, the best and easiest solution would be to use NFS. The reason is, if you use block storage sharing like iSCSI, the provided LUN will have to be formatted with a cluster filesystem, or both VMs will not be able to use it at once. NFS is a network FS, like SMB shares, so you can provide NFS shares to multipale clients simultaneously, without fear of disk corruption. NFS will handle the file access conflicts automatically
