Not able to access the drive on MSA1000

Thanks, All the servers are on the same domain and we have only two nodes on the cluster active/passive.

I need to store the data from the servers which are not part of the cluster to SAN but I am not able access the drive.

In device manager it shows the SAN drives as unallocated, please find the attached screen shot.

Please let me know what to do.

You can NOT share Clustered disks among Stand Alone Windows boxes without corrupting the data.

You either need to create new logical drives for your individual servers OR use a network share off of your cluster.
