iSCSI is not a clustered file system, in fact it isn't a file system
at all. For iSCSI, you need to configure data fencing, typically
handled by clustering suites from various operating systems to control
which host has access to the iSCSI volumes at one time.
You should stick to CIFS or NFS, or investigate a real clustered file system.
