Re: MSA1000- configuring shared partition.

The MSA1000 serves data blocks. It does not have an idea what a partition or a file system is. It will happily offer a single logical disk to multiple servers at the same time.

If you want multiple servers to have shared access to a single file system, be careful! Many operating systems can't do that 'out of the box' and need either tweaks or additional software.

I can't answer this question if you don't even mention the operating system you are using!
