    Win2008 failover cluster on VMWare workstation 7 - shared disks

    ezlee2096 Novice

      I am creating 2-node windows 2008 clusters on VW7.

      Do I have to create the shared disk with comamnd-line tool "vmware-vdiskmanager.exe" with lsilogic, preallocate and persistant enabled?

      Or just use the create VM wizard?

       

      I found in the .vmx file that my shared disk is assigned with "scsi1:0.virtualDev = "lsisas1068", and if I change that to "lsilogic", the VM can not be boot.

      My system drive is on scsi0,  and assigned "scsi0:0.virtualDev = "lsisas1068".

       

      If I am using "lsisas1068" for the shared disks, when creating the cluster with Win2008, the disks can not be made online and added as resources.

       

      thanks,
