Windows 2008 Cluster service with CSV

2 nodes in a Windows 2008 Cluster. With both nodes added and online I have volumes on both servers showing online. Once I add the volume to CSV my secondary node disks go offline.
I can evict my second node from the cluster and run diskpart and bring the volumes back online then add the node back into the cluster.
However the second I add the volume to Cluster Shared Volume the second nodes drives go offline.
I am using iSCSI to connect to my SAN, the volume is being shared by both servers in my cluster.
Can't get the volume to stay online on my second node after I add the volume into Cluster Shared Volumes.
This is a Lun on a SAN that is a Netapp appliance.

If I understand you correctly, You are saying that the CSV Volume is only visible on one at a time. How are you checking this? using Failover clustering Manager? doesn't the volume show up in C:\ClusterStorage\Volume1 (assuming this is the first CSV)?

Failover Clustering Manager would only show one node at being the owner (Coordinator node), but it should still allow you to read/write into VM file on both nodes.

You are correct but I cannot read/write to both because when I add the csv volume it takes my secondary node volume offline.

what do you mean by "seconday node volume"? Are we talking about another volume here?

Just the node, when I add the secondary node (server) back in that I evicted. They both share the same single volume setup as CSV. After the second server node is added back in it's volume goes offline.

Can you run cluster validation on these nodes? It might point to something wrong with configuration.
