I am set a new Windows 2012 R2 cluster. RDM's are already set, SCSI bus sharing set to physical, PSP set to MRU.  and SCSI controll is the LSI SAS. When I run the cluster validation check it fails on storage for the SCSI-3 yet I soon as I power down the other server it passes and already set the reservation on all cluster nodes in the VMware cluster. Please note I am using the LSI SAS controller for the RDM disk since one of host in the cluster is still 5.x

You're using a dedicated SCSI controller to the RDM disks ? The SCSI ID are consistent in all virtual machines and for the hosts too ?

We are using a totally of 12 RDM's that are spread between three SCSI controller with SCSI bus shares set to physical
The VM's were being built on one newer host and not separate to separate nodes. I moved one of nodes to another host instead of using virtual compatibility mode
