Microsoft Cluster on VMware and Devices

Well, once again the Microsoft Cluster on VMware bit my ass … As you might know, MSCS on VMware is a particular kind of pain, with each upgrade you end up with the same problem over and over again (SCSI reservations on the RDM-LUNs being one, and the passive node not booting being the other).

So I opened up another support case with VMware, and the responded like this:

Please see this kb entry: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1016106

This doesn’t completely fit my case, but since the only active cluster-node failed yesterday evening (it’s only our internal file-share server, thus no worries), I thought I’d try to set the options.

And guess what ? My damn cluster works again 🙂
