Hi, we have DellEMC VXRAIL VMware vSAN Cluster consist of 4 ESXi hosts. We are using vSAN iSCSI targets hooked up to Virtual Machines for Windows Server 2012 R2, Failover clustering. The cluster works fine after configuring.

However, when I run the cluster validation test, it fails with below error:

Two disks have been found on node SRVVDB01.domain.local that cannot be distinguished from one another. The disks involved have disk signature c10b5a63, SCSI page 83h VPD descriptor iqn.1998-01.com.vmware.52e5e355fe26a1cb-a80ef9982d7fc722,L,0x0000000000000000, SCSI page 80h VPD Serial Number VITSERIALbaebec5cee2b845f0bcde4434b5acd30. Please verify the storage configuration. You must either mask (unpresent, detach) one of these LUNs at this node, or, run validation and specify a disk list that includes only one of these disks, for example by using the Test-Cluster cmdlet in Windows PowerShell.

Please help !!
