Problems with mounted drives

    I have a two nodes Windows Server 2003 Ent Edition Sp1\SQL Server 2005 Ent
    Edition cluster.
    I use RAID5 drives for data and RAID10 drives for TLog.

    I use:
    - letter to access data drives (es. K:, M:, ecc...)
    - mounted drive to access log drives
    (es. K:\SQL2005_LOG ---> first RAID10 drive;
    M:\SQL2005_LOG ---> second RAID10 drive; ecc...)

    I have a lot of problems when we switch resource groups.
    Sometimes mounted drive become unaccesible.
    It is a Windows Server 2003 problem?

    I know that SQL Server 2005 supports mounted drives for clustered
    installation.
    What's the problem?
    I need help.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't use iSCSI. I have a fiber channel SAN.

  4. Can you elaborate on "a lot of problems"?
    By "mounted drives" are you talking about mount points? If so, make sure the
    mount point resource in cluster administrator is dependent on the root drive
    resource where the mount point is located.
