I think the answer is no, 'cause which server is going to arbitrate write
contention? If one owns the channel and the other mounts it read-only then
that would solve the problem, but I've yet to find a Raid solution that
supports assigning a single disk channel to more than one host channel.
Usually once you assign the disk channel to a host channel that's the
end of it. If you try to assign the disk to a second host channel it forces
you to un-assign the other host channel first.
Let me know if you get better mileage.
