multiple machines mounting same filesystem on vmware
I'm building a new webserver (RHEL5.4 on ESXi)
the /var/www partition is going to be a separate partition on an FC SAN.
in the future I would like a separate smb fileserver to also be able to read/write to the same filesystem at the same time as the webserver
I know that I can do this with GFS, but I don't have very much experience of it so I am wondering if I can create a vmware filesystem and have another vmware server mount the same filesystem. Does vmware manage multiple read/writes at the lower level or does the native (RHEL) fs need to deal with that.
please forgive me if this doesn't make sense.
