    Hello All,

    The storage team has zoned in the same SAN disk to two of our linux servers. I was able to successfully create a logical volume and mount the disk on both servers, such that they are now both visible. However, when I create a file on the shared disk on the 1st server the file does not show up on the second server and vice versa. I would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions on what to do to get the same files to show up on both servers at all times, and to truly become a shared server.

    Maybe it is a permissions problem?

    Hi Falko,

    I don't think its a permissions issue, because the files aren't even visible. So I have two linux servers, server A and server B. On Server A I created the volumes and mounted the disk. On Server B I mounted the same disk. Now when I create file i on Server A. I can't see that file on server B. And the same applies vice versa.

    Not sure why .. any help is greatly appreciated..

    This might mean that the files (or the directories they are in) don't have read permissions, so they can't be seen.
