I have a 2 node Windows 2008 R2 failover cluster configured and working with an MSDTC appplication that can move between the nodes.

The cluster verification works ok but when I attempt to install a SQL cluster, the setup support rules section fails with a cluster shared disk available error.

So it's basically saying I don't have shared storage available which isn't true because I have at least 3 drives sitting in failover cluster manager ready for use and online.

I've just tired running the entire thing from node2 and get the same result.

Can anyone help me?
