3.4 Rules for Operating a Novell Cluster Services SAN

When you create a Novell Cluster Services system that utilizes shared storage space (a Storage Area Network, or SAN), it is important to remember that all servers attached to the shared disks, whether in the cluster or not, have access to all of the data on the shared storage space unless you specifically prevent such access. Novell Cluster Services arbitrates access to shared data for all cluster nodes, but cannot protect shared data from being corrupted by noncluster servers.
