Hello everyone,
I need someone to help me with the below:
I have an HP MSA storage connected and configured with RAID 10, the disk is now visible on the ESXI 6.5.
But I am having an issue to create and include it on a failover cluster.
I will quite appreciate it,if someone could help me with an information on how to add an additional storage to the failover cluster.

 

Also, a step by step to install and configure cluster on windows server 2016.Although, the OS was installed on ESXI 6.5.

 

Thanks

Hi @tonnybabs,

 

You can refer to the official Microsoft documentation on how to create failover clusters:

 

Create a failover cluster
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/failover-clustering/create-failover-cluster

Here's a Microsoft blog post on how to add disk to a cluster:

 

Adding Disk to Cluster
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Failover-Clustering/Adding-Disk-to-Cluster/ba-p/371257

 

If you're planning to use Cluster Shared Volumes (CSVs), you can refer to the following documentation:

Use Cluster Shared Volumes in a failover cluster

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/failover-clustering/failover-cluster-csvs#add-a-disk...

 

 

Hope this helps!

 

Best regards,
Leon
