    Storage Server 2008 R2 / Clustering

    I all hoping some one can help on this one.

    We recently purchased 2x Dell NX3000 Enterprise so it can be clustered. Has anyone got experience in Storage Server 2008 R2 when it comes to clustering?

    I have done a lot of googling for about 3 days and yet to find any good instructions on how to setup what we have. They are both setup as Raid5 with two partitions one for System and the other which will be for the data.

    What we are after is setting these servers up as a cluster using the partition D:\ (which is about 1TB) for the shared data - File Server to replace our current Home Drives.

    Two problems I am having:
    First is no disks detected even though the first check actually picks up all the disks but the others appear with warnings, no cluster hard disks detected.
    Second the network setttings are requesting certain things to be setup, single point of failure warnings. Which according to my research it needs a VLAN between the two servers for a dedicated link and two seperate network ports setup for network activity.

    I am hoping some one can help, perhaps a Cluster Guru about ? all the googling including the technet has not helped me what so ever. In fact everything I have tried - including creating a VHD/iSCSI target still does not show up in a Cluster HD setup screen.

    Are you using DFS? If not look into that it will be easier to setup and will achieve what you want.

    Is this what your talking about?

    HOW TO: Use DFS on a Server Cluster to Maintain a Single Namespace

    The DFS section at the bottom?
