Blade1,Blade2,Blade3 which have Windows Server 2008 Enterprise R2 x64.

All of them see this Disk (LUN 0) From the Windows

Now Blade1,Blade2,Blade3 see this Disk(MailBox),I go to blade1 and create 3 Folders on this Disk then i go to Blade2,Blade3 and access this Disk its Empty !!!!
They Must see these 3 Folders.
now i go to blade3 and Create another 2 Folders and return to blade1 ,instead of 5 Folders i see only 3 Folders

in order for all three servers to "properly" have access to a single lun, you need to be running MSCS (MicroSoft Cluster Service). Are the 3 W2K8R2 Servers clustered ?

Thanks a lot for your Help

NO,the Blade1,Blade2,Blade3 are not Clustered.

Each one need to Write to this LUN (MailBox),and the other servers need to see these new folders,files......

Hi, if you are not running clustering service you will quite likely run into problems like _corruption_ of the data.

When you have more than one host accessing the same LUN you need to run it as a cluster.
