Move Disk cluster resource to a diffrent cluster group

Hello,

I am running a Windows Server 2003 Windows cluster with three SQL 2005 instances. So the Windows cluster groups and their reasources look similar like that:

SQLGroup1:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Disk M:\
Disk S:\
Disk T:\
SQL IP address
SQL Network name
SQL Server
SQL Agent
SQL Fulltext

SQLGroup2:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Disk U:\
Disk V:\
Disk W:\
SQL IP address
SQL Network name
SQL Server
SQL Agent
SQL Fulltext

SQLGroup3:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Disk X:\
Disk Y:\
Disk Z:\
SQL IP address
SQL Network name
SQL Server
SQL Agent
SQL Fulltext

The Cluster Group SQLGroup3 has been shut down since a while now and I want to move the cluster resource 'Disk  Y:\' and 'Disk  Z:\' into the Cluster Group3 so it is available to the SQL instance using this cluster group. However when I tried that last night then I was asked if I want to move the other resoues in the group as well. If I clicked on 'No' then nothing happend when I clicked on 'Yes' then all got moved. But I only want to move the disk cluster resources.

Do I have to delete the disk resource from SQlGroup3 and then create a new in SQLGroup1?

Thank you

In SQLGroup3: check if the disk Y and Z are added as dependencies to SQL Server Resource , If yes you need to remove the dependencies.

Also, check if these disks are added as dependencies to other resources in SQLGroup3, if yes remove those also.

Once done, you will be able move these to differnet groups.

Hello dba2dba,

You are right. The SQL Server cluster resource has the disks listed as resource dependencies. The cluster is in production so I will have to wait until off hours to move the disks but I will definatly give that a try and then let you know.

Thank you

I removed the dependencies and that worked like a champ.
