Re: [Xen-API] Configuration needed to share a VDI


I really need to mount RW in both VMs. I am creating a fail-over cluster, using concurrent storage for data.
I'll try to create a new vbd and attach it to the other VM.

Any other clues?

Is it possible to do in XCP?

You could possibly do this if only one VM attaches the disk RW, but you should definitely not do this if you want more than one of the VMs to attach the disk RW. For that, you should use something like NFS instead.

To share a VDI, create a new vbd to connect the second VM to the VDI. Do 'xe help vbd-create' for docs.
