Hi All,
we have 2 DL380 servers running windows 2003 enterprise server SP1 in cluster environment.these servers are connected with eva4000 and i have installed MPIO DSM on both nodes. Each node have 2 FCHBAs connected with 2 san switches and eventually with eva4000.vdisks have been cretaed and presented to both nodes. The issue is when one node goes down the disks resources does not transfer to adopting node. It takes much time. If i remove FC cable from one FCHBA then the failover works fine but not when both FCHBAs are connected. Is there any configuration that needs to be changed.attached is the hpdsm devices output.
Any suggestion?????

Can you test failover with a manual group move? GO into the Cluster Admin, right click a Resource group and click Move Group.

Did you pre-present tall the disks to both nodes before configuring the cluster?
