I am trying to add  back a physical disk resource to a group in the cluster. The disk resource was mistakenly deleted but not the data).The problem is that I can never get it to show up for me to add when I am in Cluster Administrator on a Windows 2003 Enterprize server.
So my question is how can I re-add a cluster disk to a group.

Do both nodes do the same thing?

Reboot.  A restart of the services MIGHT fix this, but a reboot - of BOTH nodes - would proabbly be better.  Then add a new physical disk resource and you should see it.

First of All : "Do you see the Disk in the Disk Management Console ?"

If so, then try to Create a NEW EMPTY Group and assign the disk to it !

After this, move the disk to the Group you want it and assign the Dependencies to the disk !!

Hope this works !
