or not try to do something like two hosts with local storage in same
if this is just for some tests, either put them in different ones, or
say, enable NFS on one of them and compromise on not using the storage
from the other one (or NFS on each, and use two NFS storage domains in
the same DC) - of course a failure of each node in this case will mean
VMs hosted on it won't be able to run, so it would be similar to just
having a local storage host alone...
btw, this will hold for gluster as well, unless you use replication. so
in any case you are limited in capacity.
