I have two servers connecting via fiber back to the san, and am able to attach the luns but when I try to make them work the storage never goes online.    I have a similar setup working great only it connects via ISCSI...   anyone know how to get fiber storage added to failover clustering?

You need to install windows feature called MPIO on servers and reboot the servers

Then it will work

Or even better to search for MPIO driver from SAN manufacturer. Which SAN do you have?
