Hi,

I need to do some experiment on Veritas Cluster. Can I set it up on Vsphere? Like installing VCS on two linux boxes and test it?

Yes, this can be done.

You can use Virtual SCSI Bus Sharing to help with this, on a single VMware host.

The document you refered me to setup  in ESX host level. What I want to do is, I want to create VMs in Same ESX host and, the need to install VCS on 2 Linux guests and need to test it.  Can I do it?

Thank you. How do I do it. I am running vsphere 5 on my esx host and running  2 Linux vms.  Do I need to enable anything? Or  just install  VCS on both vms and configure ?

follow the above guide, but ignore references to Windows!

what's important is setting SCSI Bus Sharing to Virtual between VMs on the same host.

Thank you. IF I understand correctly, I can use iscsi right? Like openfiler or freenas?

Yes, you can use iSCSI as an alternative to create shared storage LUNs.
