Cluster 2003

There were pre-built servers Server A and Server B that are clustered (2003). The file share is not in a shared volume format so when node A flips to node B the files don't get transferred over because the disk drive (F volume) are local to the servers (not shared). What is the best way to fix this since data is already on node A? Thank you.

For a failover cluster to work, the clustered volumes must be on shared disks - local disks will not work.  You need to established disks that can be accessed by both systems and move the F: volume to the shared disks.
