‌This would typically be used to share a disk (VMDK) between guest operating systems for clustering within the guest. It should not be used as a normal disk and presented to multiple virtual machines such as a standard NTFS disk presented to multiple windows machines. Doing so without correct configuration within The guest could lead to corruption of data stored on the shared disk.
