Windows 2012 cluster issues

Hi Experts,

I am a client who is building SQL 2012 availability groups as per link below

http://blogs.technet.com/b/canitpro/archive/2013/08/20/step-by-step-creating-a-sql-server-2012-alwayson-availability-group.aspx

So  far the installation of cluster feature on 3 nodes and the cluster setup has been completed successfully.

However, the client cannot add disks to the cluster… I see them, I can online them and control them via disk manager etc., just not in the cluster.

Any ideas?

Environment below:

Windows 2012 R2 OS for all the VMs

Virtual machines residing on a vPshere 5.5 host

SQL 2014 enterprise edition

Any ideas?

If the disks are not shared storage (iSCSI, SAS, FC, etc) then they can't be added to a cluster. But SQL AlwaysOn doesn't require shared storage either, and no step in that walkthrough requires working with storage via Cluster Manager.
