How to share san msa 1000 storage

I have a san msa1000 storage. I try to share it between 4 servers, the logical drives are corrupted. When i used it with one server , it works perfectly. Can anyone help me?

that is the expected behaviour. You cannot simply share logical drives between servers. You need a file locking mechanism (e.g. Polyserve). Or else you need a cluster (MSCS if you have Windows). This would allow you to switch the drive from one server to the other, but in a cluster only one node has access to the drive at any particular time.
