1. Hello,

    We just configured a data disk to be share between 2 VMs. Little did we know all of this was needed (in AWS it is just plug and play).
    Do you offer your services to help with enabling the shared disk to be properly accessible by both VMs?

    Thank you.

    1. Hello Esteban,
      thank you for being so interested in my blog. I don’t work as an individual. You can find many individual professionals on sites like Fiverr, Upwork, and freelancer.

  2. Thank You for this. There is an important item I do not understand. This article shows that the file system is available simultaneously on both nodes for read/write. I thought it was only available in a standard/passive node where only 1 machine could be operational at a time and have access to the shared drive.

  3. Hi Anthony Dolce, you are right, you can write only from the Cluster Owner machine, and this is what this article shows. You can have read operations simultaneously from all machines. So, all machines in the cluster can list and read the shared disk, but only the owner node can write on it. Exactly the same as an on-premises Windows Server failover cluster.

  4. Hello,
    Thanks a lot for your post!
    I just created two Azure Windows 2022 Core and joined them to the domain. I insalled the Cluster Service on both end. The service doesn’t start:
    The Cluster service cannot be started. An attempt to read configuration data from the Windows registry failed with error ‘2’. Please use the Failover Cluster Management snap-in to ensure that this machine is a member of a cluster. If you intend to add this machine to an existing cluster use the Add Node Wizard. Alternatively, if this machine has been configured as a member of a cluster, it will be necessary to restore the missing configuration data that is necessary for the Cluster Service to identify that it is a member of a cluster. Perform a System State Restore of this machine in order to restore the configuration data.
    In order to continue we need the service to be started on both nodes?
