My experience with Linux is very limited and I am not sure how to setup an OCFS2 cluster that is going to be used by two Red Hat servers.

What I am trying to do. I have two Red Hat 6.2 VMs that are going to be used for vCloud Director. Part of the setup requires mounting a shared NFS volume. Unfortunately I only have access to a Dell EqualLogic iSCSI SAN, so I can't setup a NFS share.

From what I read, using an OCFS share should work since both servers can read/write at the same time. If there is a better way to do this, please let me know.

I have found a bunch of websites about OCFS, but none seem to have great instructions for someone not overly familiar with Linux. I am looking for something pretty straight forward such as:

1. yum install ocfs
2. Configure ocfs
3. mount ocfs
