SQL Server 2005 SP2 on a cluster node with two members. OS is Windows 2003 Server SP2. This the production environment. Test environment is not clustered.

On the Cluster Administrator/Groups there are 2 groups defined for instances. Need to create db on an instance which has a group with 3 physical drives, U, V and W. When trying to create a new database the default location for data and log files uses the U drive by default. If I overwrite the file location to use the V drive for the log file to separate data and log file locations, the following error is displayed :
" Cannot use file 'V:\..\..' for clustered server. Only formatted files on which the cluster resource of the server has a dependency can be used. Either the disk resource containing the file is not present in the cluster group or the cluster resource of the SQL server does not have a dependency on it. Create Database Failed. Some files names listed could not be created. Check related errors.(Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 5184)"

The disk dive V is past of the group for that instance so do I need to create dependencies among the physical disks for this particular group? Hehe Any suggestions

For clarification, the new disk volumes/resources are online and in the same cluster group as the SQL Server resource, correct? Also, is the SQL Server resource dependent on the new volumes?

Yes to both. The drives U and V are on the same SQL Group which is online and it are a Physical Drives under the resource type column.

Figure it out. I was adding the dependy on the wrong group instead that on the SQL Server Group.

All the steps you have done so far is correct. you just missed another step where you need to add the dependency at the SQL Server resource under SQL Group.
The SQL Server Resource should be take offline to add the dependancy.
Once add bring online and now you able to see the added disk.
You may use below script to view.

select * from sys.dm_io_cluster_shared_drives
Go
