Unable to share folder in Windows 2008 Enterprise cluster
Posted on 2010-08-15
I have 2 Windows 2008 ENT server in a cluster with a SAN volume for shared storage.
A folder on the SAN volume is shared.
Then oneday user's PC is unable to access this shared folder althought it is still accessible from the cluster server Remote Desktop. When I trie to remove and recreate the shared folder on the cluster - it says the folder cannot be shared.
If I copy the folder to one of the nodes and share, it is successfully shared.
I have tried copying the volume, cloning the volume, creating a new volume and trying to share the folder on the cluster, but the error message is still the same "the folder cannot be shared".
Any suggestions as to what is wrong with the cluster?
(I had to break the cluster to share the folder, so this is for future knowledge when I recreate the cluster and shared folder).
