Snapshot with sharing virtual RDM between 2 VMs

Hi Expert , i have a question , i am using same LUN as a Virtual RDM on Two Machines, now i want to take a snapshot , do i need to take on VM1 only or also take snapshot on VM2 at the same time , what is the practice of taking snapshot when sharing a single LUN between 2 VMs as a virtual Mode , or its enough to take snapshot only VM1 , i will revert it after 10 minutes after some activity . does snapshot revert will make any impact on second VM or not . please share the experience .

That won't work. You cannot use snapshots for shared virtual disks.
