Error Code details
Severity: n/a 
Component: Volume Clustering 
Operation failed. The disk cannot be added as a member of a cluster dynamic disk group because it is not on the shared bus

This message appears if the Veritas Enterprise Administrator (VEA) client is unable to establish a connection with a VEA server.

Note: In many cases, the VEA client is running on the same computer as the VEA service.

Possible causes:

- The VEA service is not started.
- The VEA service is not responding.
- Something is preventing the VEA client from establishing a connection with the VEA server.

1. Open a command prompt

2. Type vxclus usesystembus ON and hit Enter. The following message will appear:

"V-77-57616-50026: WARNING: By enabling UseSystemBus you are going to create
cluster diskgroup on the disks which are connected to System/
Boot bus. Do you want to continue(Y/N)?"

3. Type y and hit Enter. The following message will appear:

"V-77-57616-4046: [hostname] Enabled UseSystemBus support."

These steps will need to be performed on all nodes in the cluster. It is now possible to create a cluster disk group without receiving the error.
