I just joined this organization as a SQL Developer/DBA and manage some of the servers there. One of the applications has a dedicated Win 2003 server for Production running
SQL Server 2005 on an Active/Passive Cluster. We requested the storage team for a new SAN Drive be included to the existing cluster so that the daily backups be routed to that Drive (G:) allowing the application enough space on the Data Drive (E:).
The storage team successfully assigned the new SAN Drive to both the clusters after a re-scan. The new drive was available to the OS either to the Active Node (Node
1) or to the Passive Node (Node 2) after failover. But somehow, SQL Server does not recognize this drive as part of its resources and so I am not able to route my backups to the new drive (G :).
Below are the configurations of the cluster.
The server has three Groups in Cluster Administrator as Cluster Group. Group 0 and Group 1.
