Clustered Shared Drives Disappearing
Posted on 2004-08-03
I am not sure whether this question should be posted here or somewhere else.
I have two Windows 2000 Adv. Server Servers, running SP4. We are trying to load Cluster Services onto the Servers and attached shared storage. The shared storage is on a Compaq Smart Arry with four volumes.
Before I load cluster services, everything is fine. I can see all the drives in Disk Management, I can see them in My Computer; everything is fine on both machines.
I load the cluster services on Node A, no problem installs just fine, starts up just fine, I create the Cluster Groups I need, set the resources I need, everything is still fine. I load Cluster Services on Node B, everything is good, joins the cluster fine.
Problem is that Node B can't see the shared drives anymore. Also if I reboot Node A, neither of the boxes can see the shared drives anymore. I believe this has something to do with Compaq drive array being a "single use" drive array. Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions?
