I am building a new hyper-v cluster with Windows Server 2012 R2 to replace my 2008 R2 cluster.
I have the following:
- 2 x Dell Servers
- QLogic SANbox 5800 FC switch
- Winsys FC storage array (will be shared cluster volume)
I have connected each Windows node and storage array to the switch and configured those ports/WWN's with their own zone on the FC switch. On each node, I can see the shared storage in Disk Management and was able to bring the storage online for both and initialize. However, the problem I am having is that each node isn't seeing the changes that the other is making. If I create a folder on one node, I don't see the folder show up on the other node and vice versa. I had this same problem years ago with the 2008 R2 cluster at first but sadly didn't document how I fixed it (shame on me). I am fairly certain it is a switch problem but I can't recall for the life of me what it was, plus I don't see anything on the switch that I could be missing.
Anyone else ever run into this problem with FC? I would appreciate any advice anyone might have.
