Cluster Disk x does not support Persistent Reservations

Hi,
Need some help.
I have 2x DL380 g6 WIN2K8 r2 Ent with MSA2312fc Dual Controller Array and when configuring failover cluster, i always get the same "Cluster Disk x does not support Persistent Reservations".

Any idea?

Already updated the firmware:
HBA
HP StorageWorks Fibre Channel Adapter Kit for the x64 Emulex Storport Driver - 3.11.0.0

MSA
Storage Controller Code Version M110R21
Memory Controller FPGA Code Version F300R22
Storage Controller Loader Code Version 19.009
Management Controller Code Version W441R06
Management Controller Loader Code Version 12.015
Expander Controller Code Version 1103
CPLD Code Version 8

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

Re: Cluster Disk x does not support Persistent Reservations

Hi, I have 5 LUN's with several sizes, but the main configuration part is:

Preferred Owner A
Current Owner A
Serial Number 00c0ffd85f93000086748d4a01000000
Cache Write Policy write-back
Cache Optimization standard
Read Ahead Size Default
Type standard

Should i configure them has explicit for both servers?

I have them configured through a fo sanswitch and presented to all ports.

Re: Cluster Disk x does not support Persistent Reservations

No good.

Configured explicit mappings for both servers, able to see them in disk management, but still the same error in failover cluster validation report.

"Cluster Disk 0 does not support Persistent Reservations. Some storage devices require specific firmware versions or settings to function properly with failover clusters. Please contact your storage administrator or storage vendor to check the configuration of the storage to allow it to function properly with failover clusters."
