Yes, I tried it once in VMware workstation, and it kept on telling me clustering was not supported. Which meant it would not let you share one drive between two workstations.

You can do it in vmware workstation if you set up a 3rd workstation as the NAS server. Like I said, I set it up in vmware workstation using 2 OEL workstations, and 1 openfiler workstation. Its not too hard, and gives you a much better feel for what a production RAC installtion is like.
