Hello all

I have a windows 2008 2 node SQL cluster, each node in the cluster has one
SQL virtual server running. From my workstation ( windows 7) I am trying to
connect to the C$ on one of the virtual servers, but I cannot, when I open
the failover cluster admin tool and drill down to the virtual server, I
notice under Disk Drives that there is no C$ drive listed, and I am thinking
this is why I cannot connect to (for example) \\irv-idc-vs13\C$ I can
however connect to the all the drives that are listed as running on the
virtual server, for example the virtual server \\irv-idc-vs13\J$ I can
connect to. Is this by design? I know this is not the case with windows 2003
clusters, I am able to connect to the C$ on a virtual server that is running
on a windows 2003 cluster.

Many thanks

And this is by design. Shares are now scoped to the the network names.

a virtual server (clustered network name) does not actually have a disk
mounted on C, hence it does not have a C$ share.

only the physical nodes have a disk mounted on C, so you can only connect to
the C$ shares using the node name.

HTH,
Edwin.
