Configuring a file server on Windows 2008 R2 using a SAN and ISCSI
Posted on 2011-09-17
I configured two servers using Windows 2008 R2 enterprise and configured each to connect to my SAN via ISCSI. I can see two volumes on each of the servers, one that's 10GB (for the cluster DB) and one that's 18TB (for my file share data). I assigned drive letters to these volumes on each server (F: and G:). The two volumes are supposed to be shared across the servers.
However, I noticed that if I copy a file to the F: on server1 and then I go to server2 and look at the F:, I do not see the file. My assumption was that since these volumes are shared across the two servers that I should see the file on the F: from either server. Is something wrong? I want to make sure I get it right before I install the failover cluster components.
Thank you in advance for your help.
