Connecting new Windows Cluster nodes to existing Cluster Shared Volume

GRIMSTONER

Hi

 

We built a Windows Failover Cluster to host a couple of virtual machines. The VM's hard drives (VHDX's) is presented to the host through a FCP connected LUN. The LUN was created when there were 3 nodes in the cluster, using SnapDrive.

 

We've now added more nodes to the cluster... How do I (using SnapDrive) mount the same LUN (the CSV) on the new nodes? Do I just use the "Connect Disk" function in SnapDrive?

"connect disk" should be the next step, if you've already added the node to the cluster

I actually ended up adding my initiator groups for the new machines directly to the LUN.
