First of all add the new drive in the cluster resources and configure the SQL Server to be dependent on that drive.
Then you need to change tempdb file locations using the following commands:
ALTER DATABASE TempDB MODIFY FILE
(NAME = tempdev, FILENAME = 'N:datatempdb.mdf')
GO
ALTER DATABASE TempDB MODIFY FILE
(NAME = templog, FILENAME = 'N:datatemplog.ldf')

Open in new window

NOTE: I used 'N' as the new drive letter but you need to change it for the letter that you are using.

Now you just need to restart the SQL Server and will start with the tempdb in the new location.
