Hi Experts,

I am configuring a Windows 2008 R2 cluster with two nodes to create a SQl cluster environment for failover purposes.

I created the two nodes (windows 2008 R2 enterprise OS) These two nodes are VMs using shared storage.

When I created the shared .vmdks on the first node and shared these drives with the second node (both nodes are using the  shared .vmdks files).

The OS for the nodes are on a separated .vmdk files (not shared).

After sharing the .vmdk files with the second node I tried to start the first node and The vm failed to start.

I am getting this error message:

 " Failed to lock the file Failed to start the virtual machine.
Module DiskEarly power on failed.
Cannot open the disk '/vmfs/volumes/530277cf-3da17ede-e16e-848f69e5e04a/Servername/Servername.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. "
 


Any thoughts ?

the problem is related to the Hypervisor. You should change/add the vendor to the Topics (VMWare, VirtualBox, KVM, Hyper-V, etc...)
