No disks were found on which to perform cluster validation tests
I have an iSCSI SAN storage (Stonefly) and I have 2 Windows
2008 servers that have the iSCSI initiator software installed. I have
given access to both servers so they can both access the array.
For now, I've just had them access it one at a time. (i.e. connect
server 1 to the array, then disconnect and then connect server 2 to
I have the Failover Clustering feature installed on both servers.
When I run the Validation Wizard it fais and it says that "no disks
were found on which to perform cluster validation tests". At this
point both of the servers were disconnected from the array. I even
tried to connect one of 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
direction 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?
Thanks in advance,
Re: No disks were found on which to perform cluster validation tests
Can you check that the array supports the clustering and enable multiple intiatiors on the LUN so they can be arbitrated by a cluster. It is a feature that needs to be enabled on the array, so that only one hosts should be able to access the LUN at a particular time and it will be also not enough for clustering.
