We have just had a CSV disk fail causing most of our VMs to go offline. The disk has since come back online on another node but is now stuck in redirected access and when I attempt to turn off redirected access the dialog saying "The operations is taking longer than expected"
We have a 3 node cluster with all nodes running W2K8 R2 SP1.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how I can get the CSV disk out of redirected access?

There are basically four reasons a CSV volume may be in a Redirected Access mode.
The user intentionally places the CSV Volume in Redirected Access mode.
There is a storage connectivity failure for a node in which case all I\O is redirected over a cluster network designated for CSV traffic to another node.
A backup of a CSV volume is in progress or failed.
An incompatible filter driver is installed on the node.
Test-ClusterResourceFailure "Disk name"
And with VSSAdmin list shadows you can find if there is a shadow copy pending if there is you can delete this with vssadmin delete shadows /shadow=id
run fltmc http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2160002 then do a reboot
check if you have this CSV update http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2674551
