    As we all know the Cluster services locks access to the quorum and drives on the standby nodes.

    We have added an additional SAN and I have added a drive on both Nodes with the same drive letter N.

    I created a new group in the cluster admin called test and added the physical disk resource for the new drive N.

    I can now add something to the new drive on the active node, then ‘move groupe’ to the 2nd node and this node can then access the N drive and see the files I made (and vice versa).

    But for some strange reason the new disk is showing in the disk manager like below:

    its showing the black bar and stating the size of the disk, although this is locking the drive and I cannot access it in my computer on the standy node it is showing like that.

    At the moment the 3 disks on the old SAN which is in operation locks the drives and shows them like this:

    I would like to make sure 100% that this is ok before I start to use the new SAN for business use.

    Thanks
