I now use Windows storage server to create iSCSI targets that are exposed to the cluster nodes, but if you're happy using FreeNAS thats fine.
And you say that now! :-D
Yeah, I was stuck for 2 hours here at work. I was not able to see the iSCSI disks from Windows. And it was because a stupid mistake: the iSCSI service was "off". I do not think that explanation is on your tutorial, because I believe that's what you call there "enable iSCSI target" or something like that. Once I turned on, voila' ... silly mistake from my part.
I like freeNAS, never used it, so I am glad I am learning new stuff. Back to 2003 when I build my 1st Virtual Cluster, I used fixed shared storage that found online. Ohhh... those times , lol, it was SQL 2000 and Win 2003.
I know that if I pass this part (shared disks and attach those to Windows) the rest is piece of cake for me: DC, joining nodes, etc. I think SQL 2012 cluster setup is similar to SQL 2008, but wanted to give a try.
