  • Your ClusterStorage folder should have a "VolumeX" folder within it, if you've configured the cluster and the cluster disks correctly.

    You cannot create a folder directly under C:\ClusterStorage, it needs to be created under C:\ClusterStorage\VolumeX\<CreatedFolder>.

    As described in here https://www.veeam.com/kb2194

    For the VolumeX (for example: Volume1) to be created, you need to add a Cluster Shared Volume, see: 
    Add a disk to CSV on a failover cluster

  • Hi,

    The Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) is a simple NTFS/ReFS volume that is pointed at by a mount point, so when you're trying to access the "Volume1" you are actually accessing the files on a physical volume.

    I would not recommend changing any existing permissions, if you cannot access it you can create additional groups with different access.


    Best regards,
    Leon

  • This is not a Vream forum. You need to ask these questions in the vream forums.
