Unable to quick migrate or Live Migrate

Hello

I have recently ventured over to virtualisation with my company and have purchased the following:

2x HP DL380 Servers
1x P2000 SAN
2x HP Provurve 2901-ag switches

We have a specialist come in for a day and configured the networking side as the switches were quite hard to configure (they needed CLI rather than GUI)

This was all working with a single VM but more recently I have found that live migration and quick migration are not working.  Failover migration does work. If we shut down HV-host1 then the VM's do move over to HV-host2.

The other interesting thing which I think in relevant is that when going into the C:\ ClusterStorage folder on HV-host2 its empty.

As I say this is fairly new to me and as we have live VM's on the system I am not keen to make changes without knowing all the facts.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Items of note

A fail-over cluster must be configured, and the solution must pass all of the tests in the validation wizard. For more details, refer to: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771404.aspx.
All nodes in the cluster must use the same processor or processors from the same manufacturer.
All nodes must have access to the shared storage devices—LUNs that reside on Internet SCSI (iSCSI); Fibre Channel; and Serial Attatched SCSI (SAS) storage arrays

I have resolved this by stopping and restarting the Cluster service.
Now everything is online and the live & Quick Migrate are both working.

As there were no posts on this case I have had to do the research and testing myself. This resulted in trying a few things including restarting the Cluster service.
