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.


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>
