Failover clustered disks

Postby guest » Sun Nov 16, 2008 9:56 pm

The logic for many functions has been simplified in Failover Clustering in
2008. The disk resource is part of a Service or Application and is
typically automatically included in certain dependencies. To move a disk
resource to another node, you can simply right-click on the Service or
Application and choose "Move this service or application to another node >"
[or "move virtual machine(s) to another node>"] and then select the
appropriate node.

Hope this helps,

You've never been able to move at the "resource" level...this isn't new in
2008. You've always had to move cluster resources at the group level, which
is no different in 2008 cluster. If your disk is unassigned to any service
or application group, you would need to test moving this disk by using the
following command from a command prompt:

cluster group "Available Storage" /move

This would move the available storage group between nodes. If your disk
belongs to a service or application group, you would just right click on
that service or application group and move it to the other node.

Hope this helps.
