Independently created EVS disks are data disks. In the disk list, the function of such disks is displayed as Data disk, and the status is displayed as Available. In this case, you need to attach the data disks to servers for use.
This topic describes how to attach a shared EVS disk to servers. Shared EVS disks can be attached to up to 16 servers.
The disk list page is displayed.
The Attach Disk dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 1.
The disk list page is displayed. The status of the disk is Attaching, indicating that the disk is being attached to the servers. When the disk status changes to In-use, the disk is successfully attached.
If you simply attach a shared EVS disk to multiple servers, files cannot be shared between the servers as shared EVS disks do not have the cluster capability. Therefore, build a shared file system or deploy a cluster management system to share files between servers.
