yes, it is very much possible & thats basically the use of CFS to have a mount point simultaneously accessed from multiple nodes..

regarding the config, did u had a look at SFCFS install & admin guide ? though the entire guide is worth to read however for your current requirement ... I would suggest to read the below chapter..

This is quite straight forward.  The installation and configuration wizards will do most of the work for you, setting up I/O fencing and basic VCS structure with a "cvm" service group.  To add a mount is very similar to a normal mount and just involves importing diskgroup with "-s" option and then adding mount to VCS configuration, so for example:

 vxdg -s init datadg disk01

vxassist -g datdg make data1vol 10g

mkfs -t vxfs /dev/vx/rdsk/datadg/data1vo l

The above creates filesystem which is available to both systems.  Then add to VCS and mount:

 

 cfsmntadm add datadg data1vol /data1 cvm all=suid,rw

cfsmount /data1 
 
If you are familiar with VCS, then you can add resource to VCS manually and control using VCS commands.

Just a small addition needed :

 

 

vxdg -s init datadg disk01

vxassist -g datdg make data1vol 10g

mkfs -t vxfs /dev/vx/rdsk/datadg/data1vo l

The above creates filesystem which is available to both systems.  Then add to VCS and mount:

 ---> cfsdgadm add datadg all=sw

cfsmntadm add datadg data1vol /data1 cvm all=suid,rw

cfsmount /data1
