yes, it is very much possible

yes, it is very much possible & thats basically the use of CFS to have a mount point simultaneously accessed from multiple nodes..

regarding the config, did u had a look at SFCFS install & admin guide ? though the entire guide is worth to read however for your current requirement ... I would suggest to read the below chapter..

This is quite straight

This is quite straight forward.  The installation and configuration wizards will do most of the work for you, setting up I/O fencing and basic VCS structure with a "cvm" service group.  To add a mount is very similar to a normal mount and just involves importing diskgroup with "-s" option and then adding mount to VCS configuration, so for example:

 vxdg -s init datadg disk01

vxassist -g datdg make data1vol 10g

mkfs -t vxfs /dev/vx/rdsk/datadg/data1vo l

The above creates filesystem which is available to both systems.  Then add to VCS and mount:

 

 cfsmntadm add datadg data1vol /data1 cvm all=suid,rw

cfsmount /data1 
 
If you are familiar with VCS, then you can add resource to VCS manually and control using VCS commands.

Just a small addition needed

Just a small addition needed :

 

 

vxdg -s init datadg disk01

vxassist -g datdg make data1vol 10g

mkfs -t vxfs /dev/vx/rdsk/datadg/data1vo l

The above creates filesystem which is available to both systems.  Then add to VCS and mount:

 ---> cfsdgadm add datadg all=sw

cfsmntadm add datadg data1vol /data1 cvm all=suid,rw

cfsmount /data1
