Compute and Cinder

Hello,

I am playing about with openstack- I have a SAS too which I'd like to be managed by cinder.

My compute nodes are two rack mounted servers with fiber to the SAS. My controler is a Xeon desktop, without a fibre connection to the SAS.

What I'd like to do is go ahead and install cinder on one of the computes and reference the SAS via it's fibre connection.

Before I do do this, would anyone tell me if I'm going to have issues or if there are any caveats I should look out for? Or how I can have the SAS managed by cinder from another networked node which isn't attached by fibre to the SAS- the logic of how I'd do that is escaping me!

Thank you!
