Server 2016 - Failover Clustering using CSV


  • I am new to clustering and have been working at trying to set up a Clustered SQL Server 2016 environment.  I successfully installed the Failover cluster feature and created a cluster with 2 nodes, but one of the guides I was following for the SQL Server Cluster install and it recommended changing my available storage to CSV, once I did that my cluster went insane.  The CSVs were constantly changing state and switching between nodes randomly.  There were 11 CSVs and trying to keep them all on the same node was like herding cats, the installation of SQL could not complete because the CSVs couldnt stay in the same place for the duration of the install.

    My Storage is a FC SAN with Redundant connections managed via MPIO.  They are stable until they are added to CSV then they are up, down, failed, swapped between nodes.  Everything I have seen is just right click and add to CSV is there some configuration to this I am missing?
