I have an issue where when creating LUNs from Windows hosts in SQL Cluster using Snapdrive we get the following error in Snapdrive console.
"Disk Create operation on server - xxxxxxxxxx failed for reason - VDS disk object for the LUN s/n 'W-XKBZbvf7eK' has not been found"
I have a workaround for this but i would not expect this to be the acceptable behaviour of Snapdrive. Can anyone advise me on how i can fix this. I want to hand over the creation of LUNs to the Windows Server team as they do not ordinarilly allow non Windows Sys-Admins to have administrator accounts on their servers (they have given my account local admin access on servers). However, until i can get this issue sorted I cannot honestly pass this onto to the Windows admins to do. Thanks in advance.
Details of our environment:
~ Windows Server 2008 R2
~ MS SQL 2008 cluster (x3 nodes)
~ SnapManager for SQL 5.0
~ Snapdrive 6.3
~ ONtapDSM 3.4.5 (MPIO)
~ Data ONtap 7.3.5 run on filers
~ FC protocol
I have attached the screenshot of error but the text format is below.
