Hello,

we have the fallowing situation:

2 Node Windows 2008 SP2 Enterprise Cluster with an Ipostore SAN Storeage

3 Disk, one is the Quorum the other 2 are for Data Storage. We do not plan to implement these 2 as file Cluster share they are for a special Application.

We have to teamed network cards. One for the heartbeat the other one for the Client Access Network. So I have the fallowing problem. When I stop the Cluster Service on a Node. The Resources are swapping to the other Server so no problem here. But if I choose a Cluster Disk and do a simulation of a failure se resource is not changing the node and i get the fallowing error.

Event  ID : 1069

Cluster resource 'Cluster Disk 3' in clustered service or application 'Cluster Group' failed.

Again we have no services or applications clustered we just need a proper change of the sources.

I would fail the cluster group over using an elevated command window.

CLUSTER /CLUSTER:cluster-name GROUP "group-name"

to review which node is hold the groups then

CLUSTER /CLUSTER:cluster-name GROUP "group-name" /move

May have to open a cmd prompt on the  actice node due to the system account running the cluster service.

Where the group name could be "Cluster Group" (the quotes are required).
