I am trying to use diskpart so I can online my node 2 disks that are being shared with node 1 in a cluster for CSV.
My commands error out even though I am the adminstrator.
I am trying to run diskpart then the following commands,
select disk2
Online disk
Attributes disk clear readonly

The online and attributes commands fail.

Does the Hardware support capacity expansion?

The disk was already added to node 1, right? You don't use disk part to bring it online for node 2. Go to cluster management and add it as a CSV.
