In the cluster group with your IP and LUN, using cluster administrator:
1) add a network name resource (make it dependent on your IP)
2) add a FileShare resource (make it dependent on your LUN and Network name)
3) add as many FileShare resources as you need (make it dependent on your
LUN and Network name)

now your users can connect to the \\"NetworkName"\"sharename"

do not share directories on a clustered disk by right-clicking and
sharing.... that will only share on the node, not in the cluster
(see above about clustering Fileshares)
