"An error occured while trying to share folder.  The cluster resource could not be found"

I am running 3 windows server 2008 R2 host servers and 10 VMs in a clustered environment.
It's a new setup and I created 12TB's of storage on our SAN as a single drive for backups.
The drive appears on one of my host servers, but when I create a folder, I can't share it.
I get the following error message.
"An error occured while trying to share folder.  The cluster resource could not be found"

I'm trying to share a folder, or multiple folders, so I can access them from different servers/PC's via \\server\share

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

To resolve this issue, make sure that the physical disk resource is a member of the Highly Available Application or Services group in the cluster that already has a Client Access Point (CAP) configured. Also, make sure that the status of the physical disk resource is "Online."

I know the disk is online, but how do I perform the first thing you mentioned above?  Do you have instructions, as we just virtualized and I just. Now learning tons about virtualization.
Thanks.

So how do I check to see if the physical disk resource is a member of hte highly available application or services group in the cluster that has a CAP?  Can you walk me through that?

Thanks Gaurav05, what I did is, I removed the storage from the cluster and brought it online on my host server where my symantec backup exec is installed.
