I have an iSCSI SAN storage (Stonefly HSC) and I have 2 Windows 2008
servers that have the
iSCSI initiator software installed. I have given access to both
they can both access the array.
For now, I've just had them access it one at a time. (i.e. connect
to the array, then disconnect and then connect server 2 to it).
I have the Failover Clustering feature installed on both servers.
When I run the Validation Wizard it fais and it says that "no disks
found on which to perform cluster validation tests". At this point
the servers were disconnected from the array. I even tried to connect
the servers to the array but it's telling me the same thing.
I've read thru Microsoft documentation but I cannot find any clear
on how to set this up.
Am I supposed to have the disks dsconnected? Or connected only on 1
At what point do I connect both hosts to it?
You have to make sure the array supports clustering and enable multiple intiatiors on the LUN so they can be arbitrated by a cluster. This is usually a feature that has to be enabled on the array - otherwise only one of the hosts will be able to access the LUN at a time and this no sufficient for clustering.
