Dell MD3000 connected to two servers

I am wondering if there is a way to connect the MD3000 to two different servers that are not clustered. We are using Network Load Balancing to increase performance, but don't have the machines clustered. Some people have been telling me that if they are not clustered then I cannot directly attach it to both servers and if I do then one server will disconnect the drive and if I reconnect it it will then disconnect from the other. Is there a way around this so the drives appear as local volumes on both servers simultaneously?

There is no way (that I know of) to make the 2 servers access the same disk(s) at the same time. What we have done in the past for out load balanced web servers was to have the data reside on our SAN and the servers both access the data over the network from the same resource so the data is always the same.

What you could do if it is in your budget would be to get 2 more servers and cluster them on the MD3000 then have the load balanced servers access the data from them over the network.
