	I intend a simple minimal setup  of LVM. I have a number
of hardware nodes connected to a SAN. On the SAN is a pool of  drives.
If I assign whole drives to Volume Groups and dedicate each Volume Group
to a single node, am I correct in assuming that data/metadata corruption
will/can not occur? Each node will only modify the VG that it is assigned.
Are there any other issues that need to be considered? Am I correct
in assuming that Volume/LVM metadata for a volume is written only
to disks in that volume and volumes are independent of each other and
that in this simple setup some kind of clustering solution  is not

	thanx - steve
