Disk Device naming in sg/vm-Cluster

I'm facing a problem with two members of a sg/vm cluster. We are construct tow vmhost-members. Now we build on our EVA a Disk which we need build the vmos and to share between the two nodes. But on one node the disk appears as /dev/disk/disk21 on the other node as /dev/disk/disk15.
Is this really a problem ?
Should we and since where, renaming the disks ?

That is no problem.
to share the vg in a cluster you have a import/export comand, this only uses the vgID on the disk.
(aslong you use lvm).
