Hi,

This is what you need to do:

Create IP Address Resource:

1. Open Cluster Administrator
2. Right mouse click the Cluster Group where the clustered disks reside and click New>Resource
3. Type a name such as File Share IP Address
4. Select IP Address from the Resource Type drop down
5. Click Next and add all the nodes of the cluster
6. Click Next and Next again
7. Enter a spare IP and the network subnet in the relevant boxes
8. Click finish

Create Network Name Resource:

1. Open Cluster Administrator
2. Right mouse click the Cluster Group where the clustered disks reside and click New>Resource
3. Type a name such as File Share Network Name
4. Select Network Name from the Resource Type drop down
5. Click Next and add all the nodes of the cluster
6. Click Next and add the IP Address resource (created above) as a dependency
7. Click Next and enter the server name that you would like users to connect to - I.E \\FILESERVER
8. Click finish

Create File Share Resource:

1. Create the folders on the shared cluster disks
2. Right mouse click and select properties for each of the folder - then click 'Security' tab
3. Set the appropriate security on the folder
4. Open Cluster Administrator on the server
5. Right mouse click the Cluster Group where the clustered disks reside and click New>Resource
6. Type a name such as Shared Folder 1 (something meaningful)
7. Select File Share in the resource type drop down
8. Click next and then select all the cluster nodes (servers) that these shares can reside on (usually all)
9. Click next and select the disk (where the folders have been created) and add it as a dependency.  Also add the network name (created above) as a dependency
10. Click next and enter the share name (the name the users map to) and the path where the folder resides - I.E - G:\SharedFolder
11. Click the permissions button and set the share permissions
12. Click finish

Users should now be able to connect to the folders via: \\NETWORKNAME\SHARENAME
