I have created a 2008 server cluster and have a resource that I have shared from the preferred client. I have set up NFS share and permissions. I am able to see the share from the preferred client but not the network. the share does not show ip in the net share cammand on the preferred client. Other shares not an the cluster resource can be found by the network.

What can I do to fix this?

    The cluster is configured and seems to be working. I just cannot access the clustered share from the network.
