Azure VM Failover Clustering - Role node not accessible from outside owner role

Hi
I have setup 2 x Azure VM's sharing a disk and installed Failover Cluster with FS role fine.
Created a File Server (standard role) using powershell fine.
The problem is that the FS node is only accessible from the owner node only.
I dont think this is a firewall issue because I cant access it from the passive node!
I am using DNN and I can resolve the cluster nodes DNS name, failover roles and disks fine.
It's just I can access the Role node as such my clients cannot see the shares.
Not sure what else to try, maybe FCS is not supported on File Server role in Azure VM sharing disks?

not-supported

Hello @SenhorDolas-2197

I am afraid that this is by default. The CSV will be available for all nodes, but only the owner will have R/W operation.

Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/failover-clustering/failover-cluster-csvs

Hope this helps with your query,

Hi @LimitlessTechnology-2700

I am using File Server Type: File Server for General use and not SOFS as such I don't have a CSV volume configured.
The shared storage disks are only available to a node at the time and not both like in SOFS mode.

The question now is does Azure VM with Shared disks supports File Server for General use type?

Thanks, M
