I'm using ESX 3.5 update 3. I've created several microsoft clusters with virtual machines but I'm having an issue with one server.
I create the disks using the command in the manual:
vmkfstools -c <size> -d eagerzeroedthick -a lsilogic /vmfs/volumes/<mydir>/<myDisk>.vmdk
Then I add the disk to my VM and give it a new SCSI ID so that a new SCSI controller is created. When I try to change the SCSI controller to "virtual" (the setting for shared disks) I get an error message:
"Invalid Configuration for Device 0"
I've done the same steps on 3 other ESX servers and never had this issue before.
Moved to the Virtual Machine and Guest OS forum.
Review http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vi3_35/esx_3/vi3_35_25_u1_mscs.pdf for help on setting up MSCS. You will want to pay close attention to the creation of the virtual hardware setup examples.
