Can't share folder on Windows Server 2012 Clustered FS

I have two Windows 2012 Datacenter servers that have a clustered file system shared between them.  When I try to share a folder that's on said clustered file system, I receive the following error:
"The resources must be online on the same node for this operation."

I've attempted sharing using the GUI and using CLI as Administrator.  I receive the same error whether the shared FS is on Node 1 or Node 2.  I receive the same error whether the Quorum is on Node 1 or Node 2.  I receive the same error regardless of whether the Quorum and the shared FS are on the same node or different ones.  

Any suggestions as to how I can create this folder would be most appreciated!

I'm following the normal folder sharing method of Properties-Sharing in the GUI or "net share" from the Admin command line.

You need to configure 'file server' or 'Scale-out file server' Role and in this role create share.
