    Hi all,
    I have an 2 node active/passive cluster on windows 2003 R2 on sqlserver 2000. My storage is MSA500 g2 now i have added 2 more array tothe storage. i want to add this to the cluster. can you please help mewith the step. My knowledge is like this.

    1- swith off Node (inactive)
    2- Go to Disk Mangt on Node 1 and initialize the array
    3 -Format the disk as basic
    4- Add the disk to cluster as a new resource.
    5- switch on Node 2
    6- try failover and failback and see working fine
    7 - move the new resource to sql resource group
    8- under sql server add these disk as dependency

    Can you please help me to clarify, because this is our prod server.
    Best Regards
