I'm trying to create a SAN virtual disk so that 2 server can read-write on it but fail.
How to create it ?

EVA4400 is HP storage array system (vendor specific).
You might want to contact HP for the SAN setup which is quicker and more accurate.

I can not help too much on this since I only work with NetApp and Dell Storage.
