CSV not visible in C:\ClusterStorage despite being "online"
Posted on 2014-02-18
Ive been experimenting with clustering in 2012 R2 HyperV Host. I had one with the same name before (HVCL-01). During that time I created a cluster shared volume that points to an iscsi LUN on my Lefthand SAN. And it worked.
But there were speed transfer issues and I destroyed the cluster with the wizard in the Failover Cluster Manager.
Now, I've recreated the cluster (with the same nodes as before), and immediately there is a cluster shared volume here (which, I wasn't expecting). I cant seem to get rid of it, only take it offline.
Everything passes the validation wizard. It says its working
And yet when I go to C:\ClusterStorage there is no subdirectory for the volume on either of my nodes.
If I drop to powershell and do a Get-ClusterResource it shows "Cluster Disk 1" as online, owned by the Cluster Group and being a physical disk
If I do Get-ClusterSharedVolume nothing is returned, but there is no error
If I do Get-ClusterResource "Cluster Disk 1" | fl * I get a long stream of output as expected.
Its in my cluster, its a core resource, its online, its not in maintenance mode, etc.
Any thoughts on how to
1) advance my troublshooting of this issue
2) make this volume show up like its suppose to in my ClusterStorage folder
3) delete it in a clean way so I can recreate it.
Since I have two nodes only it does appear the cluster configuration decided to use the disk as a Disk Witness in Quorum.
