Имеется внешний дисковый массив. Кластер windows 2003 не видит физических дисков
Не удается управлять физическим диском "Диск X:", так как он находится на той же шине хранилища, что и загрузочный диск. Кластер не может управлять физическими дисками, находящимися на той же шине хранилища, что и том, содержащий операционную систему, так как другие узлы, подключенные к шине хранилища, не смогут отличать этот том от томов, используемых для сохранения данных.
How to add a registry value to a Windows Server 2003-based computer that you start from a SAN so that the startup disk, the pagefile disks, and the cluster disks are all on the same SAN fabric http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886569/en-us http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;305547
Booting from a SAN
Microsoft supports booting from a SAN in limited environments. There are a set of configuration restrictions around how Windows boots from a storage area network, see KB article 305547.
Windows 2000 Server clusters require that the startup disk, page file disk and system disk be on a different storage bus to the cluster server disks. To boot from a SAN, you must have a separate HBA for the boot, system and pagefile disks than the cluster disks. You MUST ensure that the cluster disks are isolated from the boot, system and pagefile disks by zoning the cluster disks into their own zone.
Windows Server 2003 will allow for startup disk and the cluster server disks hosted on the same bus. However, you would need to use Storport minioprt HBA drivers for this functionality to work. This is NOT supported configuration with in any other combination (for example, SCSI port miniport or Full port drivers).
Single Storage Bus Configurations
As described previously, in Windows 2000, only storage devices on a different bus to the system disk will be considered eligible as cluster-managed devices. In a SAN environment, the goal is to centralize all storage into a single fabric accessible through a single port (actually in most cases the host will have multiple HBAs and multi-path drivers to provide a single port view to the cluster software).
In Windows Server 2003 Cluster server has a switch that when enabled, allows any disk on the system, regardless of the bus it is on, to be eligible as a cluster-managed disk. Using this, the system disk, startup disk, pagefile disks and any cluster managed disks can be attached to the same HBA. This feature is enabled by setting the following registry key:
This feature is enabled by a registry key to ensure that it is not accidentally enabled by customers that do not understand the implications of this configuration. It is intended for OEMs to ship qualified and tested configurations and not for a typical end-user or administrator to setup in an ad hoc manner.
A single storage bus configuration MUST have device drivers that support the targeted reset functionality previously defined.
Q. Can the startup disk, pagefile disks and the cluster disks be on the same SAN fabric?
A. No, in Windows Server 2003, there is a registry key that allows the startup disk, pagefile disks, and cluster disks to be on the same bus. This feature is enabled by a registry key, which helps ensure that it is not accidentally enabled by customers who do not understand the implications of this configuration. It is intended for OEMs to ship qualified and tested configurations and not for a typical end-user or administrator to set up in an ad hoc manner.
In the original release of Windows Server 2003, the registry key is:
In Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), the registry key is:
In Windows Server 2003 SP1, the key path was changed to use “Clusdisk” as a subkey instead of “ClusSvc.” This change was made to avoid issues during setup. However, the change is backward compatible, and systems that use the old key locations do not need to be modified.
