Example—Two Shared Disk Sets

Figure 18–1 shows an example configuration that uses two disk sets.

In this configuration, Host A and Host B share the disk sets red and blue. They each have their own local disk set, which is not shared. If Host A fails, Host B can take over control of Host A's shared disk set, the disk set red. Likewise, if Host B fails, Host A can take control of Host B's shared disk set, the disk set blue.

Figure 18–1 Disk Sets Example

Diagram shows how two hosts can share some disks through
shared disk sets and retain exclusive use of other disks in local disk sets.
