Even though it is technically possible to share a vmdk, you first need to find an operating system which supports simultaneous access.

Without OS support you'll end up with data corruption.

Do you already have something in mind?

I understand that, but you said "we needs solustion to replace Microsoft Cluster with RDM".

So maybe a good start would be to understand the reason why you want/need to replace it, and what exactly you are looking for as a replacement for it, i.e. what's your goal?
