Windows 2008 R2 - Disk ID are different for 2-node cluster


I have a Windows 2008 R2 cluster and I am about to add a 2nd node to this cluster.  I want to know if that if the Disk IDs such as (Disk 1 to Disk 6) need to match?

Node 1:

C drive is on Disk 6

Node 2:

C drive is on Disk 0


If this will be an issue, is there a way to alter the disk IDs on Node 2 so they match?

That makes no difference.. it will use the drives GUID (which it will create if it doesn't have one)

As ve3ofa suggested. The IDs are not important and will not hinder your cluster operations. If you're planning on running virtual servers within the cluster, assuming your cluster passes validation, all features such as live migration will work as expected.

Best of luck!
