Requirements for read-only mounting a VCS managed SAN volume
I would like some assistance with the following VCS/VXVM scenario:
We have a simple VXVM volume created on a SAN-based LUN with the following characteristics:
- RAID management for the volume is being done within the EMC frame.
- The volume is part of a VCS resource group.
- Only one system within the resource group will have the volume mounted read-write.
- The file system on the volume is UFS.
If we would like to allow two systems not currently running VCS to mount the volume read-only (they will never write to this volume), would we need anything other than VXVM to properly access the volume?
