Error Code details
Severity: n/a 
Component: Cluster Server 
Failed to create a drive mount for the specified instance. Reason could be one of the following: 1. The mount required for SQL data is not mounted. 2. The disk is not visible from all the nodes. 3. The same Mount is configured as any other resource.

This error may occur when you run the SQL Server Agent Configuration Wizard to configure a Service Group for VCS control due to one of the following reasons:

  • The wizard cannot add the MountV or Mount resource for the mount path used by SQL.
  • The drive letter is not mounted on the system where the wizard is run.
  • The mount is already configured as a resource for another service group in the cluster.
  • The disk is not accessible to all the nodes selected in the service group.
