Current we have one cluster storage disk (eg. MySite01) is in using by our SQL cluster, we want to rename it from MySite01 to Content10 (please see attached file)but there’re many DBs existing in this disk so I would like to ask you how to rename storage disk on Failover Cluster manager from Mysite01 to Content10 and then how to change db paths on SQL server disk drive because of if the storage disk path changes to Content10, databases within Mysite01 folder will be affected..could you please tell me how we should do on both side,Failover cluster management page and SQL server db paths?thanks

First stop SQL Server then you can rename the folder.
After that restart SQL Server (you'll have errors loading databases because the engine couldn't find the files) and then attach the databases providing the new locations of the files.

That's only a label. If you want to change there also you'll still need to stop SQL Server service first because of the dependencies. Try to change it with the Disk Management tool instead of Cluster Administration.

Do you have admin access? The Change button is disabled.

I don't have any cluster here to test but maybe you'll need to remove the storage from the Cluster resources to be able to perform the rename.

yes I agree with you so I suppose we will remove the storage from cluster resource but when we try this, it says It is in use and although I will remove the all depencies,I get the same error...if we remove it in any way,i don't know how I can add it again after renaming
