Hello everyone, I have 3 Windows Server 2019 and 1 Openfiler as vSAN. After I connected to iSCSI Target of Openfiler on 2 Windows Server 2019, I create a failover cluster which contains 2 Windows Server 2019.

Everything is OK, when I validate configuration of the cluster, I receive List Disks To Be Validated Failed in Storage.

The description is Physicaldisk {} does not have the inqui265683-listdisktobevalidated.pngry data (SCSI page 83h VPD descriptor) that is required by the failover clustering.

I have searched the solutions on the Internet a few days, but do not have any related advice with my problem. Please help me and comment if you need any information about this.

    Hey,

    The following thread might be helpful: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/cf865701-674d-45b1-bdd0-e982a17114f9/cluster-validation-test-says-quotphysical-disk-does-not-have-the-inquiry-data-scsi-page-83h-vpd?forum=winserverClustering

    You can also try removing iSCSI LUNs and adding new and format them. https://communities.vmware.com/t5/ESXi-Discussions/Resolved-Physical-disk-does-not-have-the-inquiry-data-SCSI-page/td-p/940977

    As another option, you can go with StarWind VSAN as a shared storage option. https://www.starwindsoftware.com/resource-library/starwind-virtual-san-3-node-hyperconverged-scenario-with-windows-server-2016/

    Hello there,

    Make sure you have the latest hotfixes including all recommended updates for all your nodes. Can you make disks online on both nodes and run validation?

    Also, try removing the disk and reading them, and run the validation and see if that helps.

    The below thread discusses the same issue and you can try out some troubleshooting steps from this and see if that helps you to sort the Issue. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/cf865701-674d-45b1-bdd0-e982a17114f9/cluster-validation-test-says-quotphysical-disk-does-not-have-the-inquiry-data-scsi-page-83h-vpd?forum=winserverClustering
