Scale-out File Server Node corrupt RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an Scale-out File server with 2 nodes.

    If node 1 is active, Node 2 has an offline disk in disk management. When a failover happens the disk on node 1 will become offline and the disk on node 2 will become online.

    Our problem is that someone removed the offline disk from (inactive) node 2 by ejecting it in Disk Management on node 2.

    Now we want to get this disk back on node 2. What should we do to resolve this issue

  • Hi,

    Are these physical cluster nodes?

    What type of disk storage/disk type are you using?

    Have you tried performing a re-scan in the Disk Management on your node 2 to see if the disk comes back?

    You might also want to try rebooting your node 2.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Leon,

    Thank you for your answer. The nodes are physical nodes.

    2 PowerVaults MD1420

    We have tried the re-scan option and this isn't the solution. The reboot also been performed and also no solution.

    We evicted the second node and rejoint it and also that won;t solve our problem

  • Can both cluster nodes still see the disk paths? Are the paths online and linked to the node 2?
