NetApp SnapDrive and creating MSCS LUN’s


When creating a LUN for a new MSCS, here is the methodology;

 

  1. Create the Volume (and Qtree if required)
  2. Create the LUN from one potential node.
  3. Create a new cluster and add all nodes (failing to do so will not allow you to add the LUN’s with the following err0r;)

  4. Connect the disk and voila! (All additional disks can be created now the Cluster is up)

    What happens if you want to add a node to your cluster after you have created the cluster and already added some volumes via SnapDrive (my cluster is W2k8R2-based)
