I have a two node cluster configured with Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise.

Can anyone let me know, how I can add a third node ? Do I need to use Diskpart to make the disks reserved etc ?

    As stated above.
    Extra steps would be required if the server hosts SQL.

    If I need to present the LUNs from a SAN to the new node, do I need to use DISPART on the 3rd node or not ? Just a little confused....

    Accepted Solution

    no, the LUNs will appear on the disk management mmc (computer management) after SAN Path configuration.
    About SAN config, I'm not able to help.
