A. You should usually use the Failover Cluster Management Microsoft Management Console snap-in to enable or disable CSVs, but you can also do it with PowerShell. To enable, run the following commands:
$cluster = Get-Cluster <cluster name> $cluster.EnableSharedVolume="Enabled"
To disable CSVs, first make sure no disks are enabled for CSV, then run the following commands:
$cluster = Get-Cluster <cluster name> $cluster.EnableSharedVolume="Disabled"
If you get an error when you're enabling CSVs and are prompted for a complete syntax, use the following command instead:
- Q. I'm copying data to a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) with storage on iSCSI from a non-coordinator node, but the traffic is not going over the iSCSI network adapter. Why not?
- Q. Is the Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV) namespace always under the C: drive?
- Q. How does a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) lock a volume?
- Q. How can I confirm that my Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) access from a node is using Direct Access or Redirected Access?
