Unable to add disk in windows cluster 2008 from MSA1500
Posted on 2009-02-17
I'm unable to add any cluster disk to a new cluster I'm forming. Everytime, it ends up with the following error:
Creating the physical disk resource for 'Cluster Disk 1'.
Bringing the resource for 'Cluster Disk 1' online.
Unable to cluster 'Cluster Disk 1'. An error occurred while attempting to bring the resource 'Cluster Disk 1' online. The cluster resource could not be brought online by the resource monitor.
There's currently two servers (both running Windows 2008 Enterprise x64) in that specific cluster and either of them can add drives succesfully. The drives can be seen normally in the OS before trying to add it as a cluster disk, but afterwards, it's stuck as "Reserved".
These drives are on a MSA1500, and both MSA1000 controllers are running firmware 5.20.
On that same NAS, there's a running cluster composed of two Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise x86, which is running fine.
