Pinned topic DS5020 and Windows Server 2012 - Failed to bring disk online

‏2012-10-01T19:37:02Z |
I am trying to build a Windows Server 2012 cluster using a DS5020. MPIO has been installed and seeing IBM 1814 FASt and IBM Universal Xport as devices.

When trying to bring any SAN volume online, I am seeing the following message:
Failed to bring disk online - Unspecified Error
Extended information: Incorrect function.

After I rescan storage, the server is saying the disk status is online. When trying to initialize the disk, the following error message is presented:
Failed to initialize disk - Unspecified Error
Extended information: Incorrect function
To rule out clustering I removed all mappings and tried mapping a volume to a single server, and still am seeing the same error messages. I also changed preferred ownership of volume to the other controller.

SAN Firmware is: 7.77.34.00

Has anyone successfully used Windows Server 2012 with a DS5020?

Thanks for any advice.

    Dear Denis,

    DS5020 is not supported for Win2012, yet. Check compatibility information on SSIC page:

    IBM System Storage Interoperation Center (SSIC)
    http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/support/storage/ssic/interoperability.wss

      Alexander,

      Thank you for the SSIC website. That explains why I can not get it working.
