SQL and san clustering

When trying to setup first node keep getting quorum error — quorum disk could not be found — Has anyone done a clustered san yet? If so please give some advice. What steps you took?
Check out: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pr…03/technologies/clustering/starenet.mspx#EEAA http://support.microsoft.com/?id=304415 SAN setup varies a lot from SAN company to SAN company, and it is hard to offer specific advice. Can the OS see the Quorum drive on the SAN? At what point are you getting this error message? We are running an an IBM ESS SAN now with no problems. —————————–

when we run the clusteradmin for new cluster it fails at looking for quorum. We are running IBM ds4300 w/ 2 blades chasis– cluster would go from chasis 1 to 2
Verify that you can see and access the quorom disk from the operating system before you start installing the actual cluster service.
Make sure you have the appropriate drivers for the SAN connectivity also. Have you contacted the SAN manufacturer on their recommendations for clustering? MeanOldDBA
