Dear all,

I have recently installed VMware Server on a Windows Server 2003 Enterprise R2 computer and have configured front and backend servers for exchange 2003.
I also configured another VM server on the same computer and wanted to configure it for clustering the backend Exchange server, as I am currently studying for the 70-284 exam and need to know how to do it.

I created an Exchange Virtual Directory on the cluster server but when I try and add a disk resource to the Exchange 2003 virtual server I get to the disk parameters page and have no drives available to choose from?
I have checked that the second drive is online and accessible I have also rescanned the disk through Computer Management and brought another disk online as well still with no joy.

These disks are not being used by another cluster group and are configured through the VMware as SCSI drives; I have to say I am at a loss for why these drives are not being recognised.
Any advice would be very appreciated
