Linux Virtualisation KVM - DataStore using Fibre Channel?

The Redhat Docu as of 5.5 and 6.0 Beta still is emplty for the chapter "Virtualization Storage Topics" and section on how to use Fibre Channel Data Store.

I have been using NFS and iSCSI and they work like a charm. I have no issues at all in doing Live Migratins between Physical Servers (even different Make and CHIPS too --- i.e. Intel to AMD)....

Now I want to use Fibre Channel.

I have tries so far using a virtual disk housed on a device mapper disk: /dev/mapper/virtdiskp1. I have the same presented on my target failover host. I have a running OS installed. But I can't seem to Live Migrate.

Anyone doing RHEL KVM or RHEV?

TIA.

Re: Linux Virtualisation KVM - DataStore using Fibre Channel?

I see it now.
Currently it seems one needs a CLuster mechanism (GFS2/RHCS) to do this. The Datastore can't be native FC Devices -- there needs to be "something" on top of it...
