Second cluster node steals my FC60

Second cluster node steals my FC60

I'm running MS cluster service on an LXr 8500 with Advanced Server. When I start up the second node, it takes over my FC60 and the first node can no longer see it. The first node still thinks it's the owner (per cluster manager), and continues to try writing to the array, and generating 3 or 4 errors a minute in the process. How can I prevent this?

The FC60 is configured in split-bus mode and connected to each node with D8602B (Agilent HHBA-510x) FC cards.

Thanks

Re: Second cluster node steals my FC60

Athough I'm not sure but your problem can be solved from cluster administrator by configuring both nodes as prefered owners.
Good luck

Windows will rob every single disk it sees.
I can't quite remember the solution to the problem and came up with other interesting features with other arrays.

The Veritas Volume Manager disk administrator on 11i and NT will understand disk headers from one os to another www.veritas.com or doc.hp.com for more info.

Later,

It works for me (tm)
