I'm trying to complete an SQL install on a two node cluster which has three LUNs assigned from Filer storage present and currently owned by the first node.
I've selected the "New SQL Server failover cluster installation" option from the setup media and got to the "Instance Configuration" step.
Here I've named the SQL Server Network Name and instance and chosen the LUN I;ve dedicated to the DB Data (H:\MSSQL10_50.SQL_DevInst1), however, when I click on next I get the following error:
Instance directory (or command line option /INSTANCEDIR) value for a cluster installation cannot be a directory on shared drive.
I'm baffled by this as the LUN is not a shared drive!
Choosing an actual local drive (C:) does allow this to continue but surely should accept my first choice?
