Clustering on CL380

Clustering on CL380

Clustering on CL380

I have a CL380. Node 1 installed fine and all works. Node 2 for love nor money will not see the disk array. I have been through all the FAQ's, advisories etc and have had no luck.
The SCSI ID's have been set to 7 & 6 on Nodes 1&2 respectively, NT installs ok, Have installed the whole of the SSd and updated everything but no joy. Have installed all the relevant drivers. Have reinstalled the CR8500 array utility which hangs on detection - not had node 1 powered off at the time. I really dont fancy explaining to the muppet at compaq tech support what i've been through. Has anyone successfully installed a CL380 and had both nodes seeing the the drive array. I realise that they wont both be able to access it at the same time but disk administrator on node2 should at least display a 'greyed' out disk. IF someone has got it to work, then please contact me.

RE: Clustering on CL380

We are experiencing the same problem, only we are running Windows 2000 Advanced server. All Installs ok on node1, but on node2 it cannot see the drives created on the array. Device i/o error when trying to access drives. Can anyone offer some help

RE: Clustering on CL380

Finally after 3 different Compaq engineers did one find the problem - a bent pin on one of the SCSI cables attaching the node to the disk array!
