Hyper-v with SAN storage CSV "element not found"


  • Hello!

    We are setting a two node Hyper-v Cluster using a EMC VNX5300 storage. The servers are HP DL380p with Brocade 815 Fiber Controllers. The strange thing in this configuration is that the servers are directly attached to the storage and the Brocade controllers are set to use the FC_AL (Arbitrated Loop) instead of P2P (Point to Point Protocol) through the brocade manager (windows app not BIOS) . With the above settings I can successfully add LUNs to servers and use the storage. On the hyper-v side I have the following problem: I have successfully added the quorum and I can switch it between the nodes but when it comes to add a CSV volume I get an error when trying to change the owner node = (Element not found ) and then the CSV enters a failed state. I will appreciate any help with the current configuration!

    Thank you in advance!
