A share disk for vmware workstation

got vmware workstation 10.1 going..

looking over some recommendation on how to create a share disk between two potential cluster nodes..

on the older version of vmware ws 8.0, there is a option of assigining a disk to a new scsi and turn parallel option on, from what I have read.

I don't want to use freenas and other third party software as much as possible,

any recommendation on how to do this on VMWARE workstation 10.1 ??SmilieSmilie

vmblock - vmware kernel module SYNOPSIS
modprobe vmblock DESCRIPTION
This is a kernel filesystem module. Ideally, it should be loaded before any of the Tools userlevel components are allowed to start, though vmblock itself has no dependencies. When loaded, vmblock will establish itself in /proc/fs/vmblock and create two nodes therein, dev and mountPoint. Before mounting a vmblock filesystem, ensure that /tmp/VMwareDnD exists as a directory with permissions 1777, otherwise host to guest drag n' drop operations won't work. To mount, issue: mount -t vmblock none /proc/fs/vmblock/mountPoint Once mounted, vmware-user(1) can begin to make use of vmblock to assist with DnD operations. Note that while vmware-user(1) is running, it'll keep an open file descriptor on /proc/fs/vmblock/dev, and thus all vmware-user(1) instances must be killed to unmount and unload vmblock. OPTIONS
vmblock has no options. SEE ALSO
