Windows failover cluster using synology NAS

Hi
I'm trying to create a Windows Server 2008 R2 failover cluster using Synology NAS as shared drive between both servers for hosting database files

I have creating the ISCSI LUN with a single target that allows multiple connections. the problem is that files are being synced between both server. so if I disconnect drive from one server then reconnect it, new files will appear.

I have tried that with NTFS and even FAT32 for the shared drive.
is there any other way that I can do it ? what am I doing wrong ??

The author is trying to Share a disk between nodes BEFORE implementing clustering.

It has already been pointed out that this leads to file system corruption and is therefore not viable. Its not difficult to realise mounting it to one and sharing is the only answer if clustering not implemented.

Original question has been adequately answered.

What is synchronizing the files between the two servers? If the drive is added to cluster ownership, then it should only be visible to a single server at any given time - if both servers can see the drive letter and write files, it's not under cluster control.

Hi
thank you very much for the response

we are facing this issue before we implement Windows Clustering

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

You cannot share a single LUN between nodes without using a cluster. File system corruption is the result as you have seen already.

LUNs in a Microsoft cluster are not shared but are only accessible by all cluster members, only one cluster member has ownership at any one time, although the other cluster members have access to it through the "owning" node.
