I am building a failover cluster for SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 2012R2 using our Nimble storage for my SQL data. I have an odd problem with it that I cannot seem to figure out.
For my shared storage, I can mount the Drive (S:) on Server 1, and Server 2 (one at a time), so all should be well. However, once I add the storage into the failover cluster, the S: drive will only mount on Server 1. I can Offline the disk, and move it to Server 2, and try to online the disk, I get a Semaphore timeout period has expired error (80070079).
The Windows Failover Cluster validatoin fails with:
I know that the Storage space was set up with the multi-initiator option. Should that be disabled for a failover cluster... if not, what am I missing?
(this is my first post, by the way).
