Duplicated Volumes on Windows Server 2008 with HP SC08Ge and HP MSA2012sa

Hi,

I have a HP MSA2012sa  dual controller storage and a dual-port Host Bus Adapter (HP SC08Ge). Each of my HBA ports is connected with one port of each controller. When i map the volumes from the storage to the server i can see each volume twice in the disk management console.

The aim of this configuration is a windows fail-over cluster (so a further server with the same controller will be added).

What am I doing wrong???

Regards

Robert

There is no Driver needed for Windows Server 2008 - I had to activate the MPIO feature....
