    Validate Storage Persistant reservation error.

    parkarnoor Novice

      Hi all,

      I am creating two sql cluster nodes in VMware host cluster.

       

      I created two VMs and installed MS failover cluster and added these two nodes.

       

      I shared .vmdk disk (in datastore), with two machines and it is appearing fine. I followed these steps:

      https://communities.vmware.com/blogs/Abhilash_hb/2013/08/25/clustering-using-sharing-of-vmdks-between-virtual-machines

       

      then after adding disk in failover cluster I run cluster validation test.

       

      but found following errors:

      validate disk failover : cancelled

      Validate SCSI-3 persistent reservation : Failed

       

      these two VMs were on different  VMware host so I moved machines on one host then above errors gone but found following error:

      Validate storage spaces persistent reservation : warning (yellow)

       

      is there any compatibility issue?

       

      also when I tried to migrate VM from one host to another I found following errors:

       

      virtual machine is configured to use a device that prevents the operation: Device 'SCSI controller 1' is SCSI controller engaged in bus- sharing.

      virtual machine is configured to use a device that prevents the operation : Device 'SCSI controller 2' is SCSI controller engaged in bus - sharing.

       

      I have selected physical as bus sharing mode. in SCSI controller setting.

       

      so does it means Microsoft VM cluster in VMware must be on same host ?

       

      so there are two questions about:

      Validate storage spaces persistent reservation ; warning

      so does it means Microsoft VM cluster in VMware must be on same host and migration is not supported?

       

      I am using ESXi 5.5

      Dell MD 3220 SAS storage

      windows 2012 R2 standard (VM cluster machines).

       

      Thank you,
