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 ?

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
