    Should I run losetup when using openfiler for RAC ?

      Grid version :
      Guest OS           : Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.3
      Host OS           : Windows 7 (64-bit )
      Hypervisor : Virtual Box 4.2.6

      I am planning to set up a 2-node RAC using VirtualBox.
      We are going to use OpenFiler as the storage appliance. So, totally 3 VMs (2 RAC Nodes + 1 OpenFiler VM)

      Once the LUNs are available , should we be running losetup command ?
      losetup /dev/loop1 /disk1
      as mentioned in

      Re: iscsi or SAN

      Isn't partition creation using fdisk enough ?

      If we use shared LUNs created from withing VirtualBox , should we be running losetup ?
