I have 3 Servers (one for VM Manager, two for VM Servers) and 1 Storage (Sun Storage 6180 (Fiber Chanel) and map volume as Default Storage Domain ).
I try to create my 2 VM Servers as Cluster on VM Manager but it has problem as below:
Case1. I can create a Server Pool with cluster by select Clustered Server Pool by select physical disk, add 2 servers then create data repository but it got problem: in page Create a Data Repository: Select Physical Disk is shown blank not see a physical disk.
Case 2. when I create server pool by uncheck Clustered Server Pool box (None Cluster) and add 2 vm servers then create data repository, the physical disk is shown but got error message:
"OVMRU_002030E Cannot create OCFS2 file system with local file server: Local FS vmserver1. Its server is not in a cluster

I assume you're using a fiber channel switch between the 6180 and the hosts or are you direct connecting? If direct connecting, how do you have multiple servers connected? It maybe as simple as a zoning issue.
1. So you're trying to create a server pool and a storage repository on a single LUN that is direct attached? Don't your software on the 6180 allow you present multiple LUNS from disk group? Think about it. You create a clustered server pool on a single LUN and then try to use that same LUN for repository.....
2. How are both hosts attached? Are there multiple HBA cards in your 6180? Is so, how many? If you have redundant cards you should be using multipathing for redundancy.
My storage (6180) have only one controller (A available ad B not available) and has two ports are connecting to 2 hosts (x4100M2 Servers) only via fiber chanel. This storage use Common Array Manager software to configure virtual disk, volume and mapping it (map as default).
Now I have solved this issue and I know clearly about this, it is different from Oracle VM 2.2.2. So we must have at least two physical disks for Pool and Repository, but a physical disk for Server Pool not require big size because it's just stored configuration of cluster and other files.
My success is I have created 2 volumes for Pool and Repository but for Pool is small volume, than it's working fine.
