I am playing with SLES 10.3 to host multiple virtual OES servers via vmWare Server. I would like to use my RAID as a shared disk for all of my OES servers and also have the ability to access the files from SLES and other SLED workstations. I was also going to rsync the server RAID to another server to have a backup of the data files...
1. Can OES servers mount Linux volumes (ReiserFS probably) and then distribute these to WinXP/Vista workstations via drive mappings?
2. Should I access the RAID using iSCSI in the VM's or is there another/better solution? (SLES server would be the iSCSI target, the OES VMs would be the iSCSI initiators...)
