Problem

Creating Volume Manager Disk Group (VMDG) resources in the Windows Failover Cluster Manager requires either creating an empty role or using a pre-existing role.  Once created the VMDG resources need to be moved to Available Storage before they can be used with the clusters native role creating tools.

Solution

Veritas support has created a simple script to allow users to create a VMDG resource.  Please download the attached file to obtain this script.

Follow this process to create a VMDg resource:

1. Create a Clustered Dynamic Disk Group.

2. Run the attached script in PowerShell with the following syntax:

.\create-VMDG-res.ps1 <resource name> <diskgroup name>
