I am trying to setup a new sql server 2008 cluster, on windows 2012R2, and the installer is failing on the cluster shaed disk availability check. I have verified that there are 5 disks assigned to "Available Storage" when viewed in the fail over cluster manager.
Some background, this is my second attempt to install sql server on this cluster. The first time, the cluster object was unable to create the new computer object during the cluster installation. This caused the installer to fail do to lack of permissions. I have since resolved this, and have run "Remove node from cluster" to uninstall sql server from the node. I am now trying again to run the installer.
About the environment, OS: windows 2012R2 SQL Version/Edition: 2008/Enterprise I am running the installer from the current cluster host(node1), and all storage is owned by node1. This includes the quorum, as well as the 5 disks assigned to the available storage group. Both cluster nodes are up and available, and accessible either through the node names, or through the windows cluster name.
There are no cluster validation warnings that I know of, but I have asked the windows admin to rerun the validation tool to confirm that, that is still the case. SQL 2008 is required by the front end application (I pushed for at least 2012, but was told it was a no go)
