Hi Experts,

We have recently installed Three HP DL360 Servers with SAN.

Now my target is to run HYPER-V (Windows Server 2019 Std) therefore i do following steps

  1. Network Configuration (Ethernet, Teaming)
  2. Installed Failover Cluster, MPIO and Hyper-V
  3. Configured Virtual Switch (IP Assignment)
  4. Failover Cluster

Validate Three Servers (Successful)
Add Quorum Disk (Attached with One Server)
Configured Cluster Shared Volume (Two Different Volume)

Issue: After Configuring CSV I am getting cluster error regarding CSV however i am re tried to Validate Cluster but it also shows error.

Servers become unresponsive, unable to open disk management (Take loading), When go to C: Drive in ClusterStorage Folder it takes too much time to load and hangs.

All Errors and Screen-Shots are attached please help me.

    Hey,

    As mentioned, the issue should be related to your network communication. You should check if your servers can communicate via SMB. Might be helpful:

    In addition, the following guide should help you with the configuration:
