Using SAN in Exchange 2010 DAG

I am in process of installing Exchange 2010 SP2. I want to create the DAG in mailbox servers I have two servers with these roles. But I am confusing that Do I have to create separate volumes for each member server in DAG or I have to have on volume shared between them. How DAG works with SAN in place. I know that as Best practice I should have two separate volume for Database and Logs. But my question is do I have to use shared volume or separate volumes in each server.

NO, you no need to use shared volume or separate volume in each server.

Exchange 2010 does not support shared volumes/lun/storage anymore. you will need to assign a separate storage space for each dag member this would mean, obviously, that you will be using x times the storage of the SAN where x is your number of nodes

Thank you but I think still I can use my SAN to attach volumes in both servers. I think it should fine since they are separate volumes in each servers. Am I right ?
no you are not right. volumes should not be shared each server should see only its own volumes
Yes I understand it shouldn't be shared. As I said since they separated I mean they should be unique volume for each server.
