I am working on 2012 r2 virtual servers sitting in a vmware environment. Dell compellent boxes are my storage.  This is my first attempt to setup a failover cluster and I think I have the concept down for what I want to do... but when I attempt to add storage disks to my cluster they come up in a failed state. The following error is what I get.

event 1069 : Cluster resource 'Cluster Disk1' of type 'Physical Disk' in clustered role 'Available Storage' failed. The error code was  '0x1'("incorrect function.")

I am creating the data stores in my storage center then attaching them to the VM's via vSphere. Bringing them into disk management, formatting them then adding to the failover cluster. They come online and format fine within disk management but fail when adding to the failover cluster. I am connecting the SAN LUN's as local storage I'm not sure if that is my problem.

Any insight?
