    Single node cluster physical disk issue

    Hi All

    I am experiancing an issue with "Bring Online" a physical disk resource. Any
    help with this would be greatly appreciated. I have the following
    configuration:

    IBM xServer
    Mirrored 36GB C: on the internal array controller
    Mirrored 36GB J: on the internal array controller
    2003 Ent.
    Single node cluster
    Local quarum on C:

    I have set up a group and assigned it an IP address and machine name. I can
    successfully create a physical disk but it fails when I attemp to "Bring
    Online". The Event log shows the following events:

    Source: ClusSvc
    Category: Physical Disk Resource
    Event ID: 1120
    Description:
    The DLL associated with cluster disk resource 'Disk_J:' is attempting to
    change the drive letter parameters from '' to 'J ' in the server cluster
    database. If your restore database operation failed, this could be caused by
    the replacement of a quorum drive with a different partition layout from the
    original quorum drive at the time the database backup was made. If this is
    the case and you would like to use the new disk as the quorum drive, we
    suggest that you stop the Cluster disk service, change the drive letter(s) of
    this drive to '', start the Cluster disk service and retry the restore
    database procedure.

    I get 4 of the following

    Source: ClusSvc
    Category: Failover Mgr
    Event ID: 1069
    Description:
    Cluster resource 'a' in Resource Group 'MFP5 Group' failed.

    Thanks for any help

    Re: Single node cluster physical disk issue

    You configuration will not work. Clustering requires an external resource.
    It can not be attached to the same controller as anything internal.

    What exactly are you trying to test.

    Re: Single node cluster physical disk issue

    Hi Rodney

    There is a reg key in 2k3 Ent. which will allow you to use a single bus for
    all cluster disk resources (system, quarum, cluster etc.).

    I have been asked to implement this configuration as a form of virtualisation.

    Have you tried deleting and recreating the disk resource?

    Sure, but will that provide true HA? Will you get the best performance?

    Single node clusters are very useful for development.

    The issue you have is because you are trying to bring a disk online that is on the same bus as the System disk and causes an Event Source: ClusSvc Category Failover Mgr, Event ID: 1069.

    If you are looking for the Registry entry that AGDGuy mentioned its documented in this Technet Article
