We have a Windows cluster with 4 nodes.
Since the upgrade from 2012 to 2016 we have the problem with some "File Server" roles that when moving a "File Server" role the storage is not connected to the correct drive letter. Then the Role does not come online.

For example, the volume has drive F: and when I move it, the volume wants to connect to drive D:. I get then among other things the following event

The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur in VolumeId: D:, DeviceName: \Device\HarddiskVolume31.

    Hello
    Found the solution and that is that on all nodes in the registry the "MountedDevices" must be known.
    If an entry is missing, the disk is assigned the first free
