Citrix Vsphere Powervault setup question

We have 2 physical PowerEdge Servers and 1 Powervault DAS.  We have Vserver installed on a seperate utility server.  At this point, we have Vmware OS loaded on the 2 physical servers, the PowerVault management tools setup on a utility server, and the 2 VMware hosts setup in vserver.  We will be using the 2 hosts with VMWare HA.  Part of that is having shared storage.  My question is, do I create one large RAID on the DAS?  Do I create separate RAID's for each host?  Once I have the drives setup, how do I configure the storage in vserver to be used by the 2-3 virtual machines?

You create one large RAID array and present this to both hosts as datastores.

You then create VMs on this datastore.

The datastore must be the same and shared by both hosts to be shared storage for HA to function.
