Mounted Volume Disconnects RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got an issue where, after running for a bit, the storage services seem to have issues and the mounted volume - Volume1 -  under C:\ClusterStorage, disappears. From the event log, it looks like my controller is receiving a reset as if the system was going into sleep mode but I checked and the power settings look fine. I am having to reboot the host to get all VMs back online. BTW, the startup script works great when a host needs to be rebooted.

    I am running a Dell T710 with 128GB RAM with 4ea 500GB mirrored drives in the pool. I have also updated firmware to the latest for the controller and the disk drives.

  • Well, right now, I am thinking I had a disk that was failing on me. It finally died but it had been throwing errors quite a bit which may have caused the glitch in the controller. I have replaced the faulty drive and I am working on the re-install now. I'll report back once I am back up and running and have had a few days to see if the issue returns.

  • One thing to try is to rollback the driver to a older/previous version or update the driver with the latest one directly from the vendor.

  • Looks like that failing disk was my issue. The cluster was failing sometimes twice a day. It hasn't failed since I replaced the disk. Thanks everyone.
