HP DL 360 G6 and HP StorageWorks MSA 2012i Dual Controller

I have two HP DL360 G6 and one MSA 2012i Storage Array. I am trying to create a Single copy Cluster with Exchange server 2007 SP 1. The instruction asked for me to create a Microsoft Cluster setup. I went through the steps to create the MS Cluster, but when I added the second node, I was unable to see the storage drive on the second node. Does anyone have any ideas on what could have caused that? Also, I was asked to make sure that all the HP Hardware was on the Microsoft Cluster HCL list, has anyone done this before, has anyone experienced the same issues? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your prompt assistance.

In a Microsoft SCC Failover Cluster, only a single node can have access to a disk resource at a time. So if the drive can be seen on one node, it wil not be seen by the other. Did you try to use cluster administrator and move the disk resource over to the other node ?
