I have another problem.

what I've done is:

  1. We deploy 2 physical hosts with SLES 12 SP1 and install XEN hypervizor on both.

  2. On each host we provide few block devices via FC.

  3. On each host we deploy fullvirt Virtual Machine with SLES 12 SP1 guest system.

  4. Block devices connected to each of VM as scsi or xendisk (virsh dumpxml above)

  5. from one of VM, we create LVM on disks (1 VG per 1 PV) fs=ext3

  6. after rescan another VM can see new VG


  1. on VM1:

    mount /dev/vg1/lv1 /srv/lv1
    echo 'test from 1st vm' > /srv/lv1/1test.txt
    umount /srv/lv1
    vgchange -an vg1 && vgexport vg1
  2. on VM2:

    vgimport vg1 && vgchange -ay vg1
    mount /dev/vg1/lv1 /srv/lv1
    cat /srv/lv1/1test.txt
    test from 1st vm
    echo 'answer from 2nd vm' >> /srv/lv1/1test.txt
    echo 'test from 2nd vm' > /srv/lv1/2test.txt
    umount /srv/lv1
    vgchange -an vg1 && vgexport vg1
  3. on VM1:

    mount /dev/vg1/lv1 /srv/lv1
    cat /srv/lv1/1test.txt
    test from 1st vm
    cat /srv/lv1/2test.txt
    no such file

What I need as result:

Devices must be consistent, and have same files.

Additional info:

  • no lock configured;

  • if I do same steps on physical hosts, all works good;

  • shared disk config:

    disk type='block' device='disk'
    driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
    source dev='/dev/mapper/360002ac0000000000000003200019bcc'/>
    target dev='sdd' bus='scsi'/>
    address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='1'/>

also tried with different disk options, such as:

driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='none' io='native'/>

Any idea, how to resolve this issue?
