Exchange cluster shared disk array configuration

Exchange cluster shared disk array configuration

Exchange cluster shared disk array configuration

Hello all.
We are setting up an Exchange cluster. Everything goes perfectly until we go to run exchange optimizer.  The optimizer gives me the warning message that i only have one logical drive.  The disk array is configured so that there are three drives.  Off the top of my head it seems to me that the drives were created incorrectly.  Any ideas?
Thanks for any help

RE: Exchange cluster shared disk array configuration

When you look at the availble volumes does it show you 3 volumes?  Optimizer is looking at the availble resources.  It may be that 1, a raid array of all three drives have been created, or 2, the other volumes have not been created and formated yet.  I would go back to Disk administrator and look to see what it gives you.

RE: Exchange cluster shared disk array configuration

ok - a little more info on the problem.  The array is about 70 gigs.  I created one extended partition and carved three logical drives out of it.  One 2 gig drive, one 5 gig drive, and one 62 gig drive.  On the owner of the cluster the only drive i can double click on is the 2 gig drive.  Click on the other two drives gives me an incorrect function error.  When i go to install exchange on the other larger shared cluster drives it tells me that i do not own the drives and to see my administrator for permission.

Any ideas?
