howto share 1 scsi storage with 2 RHEL5 servers

I have one scsi storage array, JetStor SATA 416S,split into 2 halves. each is RAID5 12TB.
Is it possible to dedicate each half to a different rhel5 server.
I have "lsi22320-r" ultra230 dual channel scsi adapter in each server.

the first server sees the 2 halfs however the second server doesn't
on the first server: cat /proc/partitions
8 48 11718749184 sdd
8 64 11718749184 sde

Thank you

This product brochure explicitly says that the disks can be shared between two computers.

Thanks for the reply. I know it can be done I just don't know How to do it? I searched the net, google, etc .... but with no success. I am hoping someone have done the same and would like to share their experince or just point to the right direction to look for answers. I read the product manual which mention that it could be done but not how to do it.
