MSA 60 and Windows Cluster

Wondering if anyone can help. I have 2 DL380 G5's connected to an MSA60 and configured as an active/passive cluster ( MSCS )

My problem is when I create my logical disks on the MSA as part of the cluster and add data to the active node, when I fail that cluster resource to the passive node, the data is not present on the passive node. Fail it back to active node and data is present.

Both nodes see the shared storage correctly i.e when the active node is up, it owns the disks and the passive node has no access to them.

OS is Windows 2003 R2 SP2 64 bit. DL380's have 10k rpm disks and MSA has 15k rpm disks. I have tried everything except try a Windows 32 bit install or swap the 10k rpm disks to be also 15k rpm.

Any ideas?

Btw the DL380's have P800 controllers that are connected to the MSA.

Re: MSA 60 and Windows Cluster

Would you tell me how many I/O Module the MSA60 has?and how do you connect or what is the connect topology?
