Adding storage to a cluster shared volume

I am trying to add storage to a cluster shared volume to host Hyper-V virtual machines, but am having no success

"There are no available disks in the cluster"

I have followed the troubleshooting steps in a previous question Q_26260604 and had to bring the available storage online.

I am able to move both the Cluster Group and Available Storage from one node to another along with all the resources

Resource             Group                Node            Status
-------------------- -------------------- --------------- ------
Cluster IP Address   Cluster Group        FIRE            Online
Cluster Name         Cluster Group        FIRE            Online
Disk Q:\             Cluster Group        FIRE            Online
Disk S:\             Cluster Group        FIRE            Online


Q= Quorum
S= Shared disk

Anyone with ideas how I can add the Disk S:\ to the cluster shared volume?

Thanks

Thanks for the comment but it doesn't really help.

Everything is setup as it should, I have enabled cluster shared volumes and have cluster storage available, but when I come to add it to the CSV I am told I have no storage.

Hi,

If you check in Failover Cluster Manager, under Storage you should have Disk Witness in Quorum and Cluster Shared Volumes. This would indicate that your current storage is now CSV enabled.

This can also be confirmed by clicking on Cluster Shared Volumes too, which will present a list of drives which are CSV enabled.

In theory, you look to have followed the correct steps and everything should be working as expected. To verify this, you will see the following folder under the root drive of your Cluster Hosts: \ClusterStorage\

Hope this helps clarify your setup, if your still not having luck, could you post some snapshots of your Failover Cluster Manager. Thanks.
