SCU Utility - the Sequel

In a previous post, I inquired about not being able to see folders on a
clustered volume using the Server Migration Utility. That problem was
resolved by recreating the pool.

The Sequel:

When trying to migrate files from one server to the new clustered server
volume, it failed to establish an SMS communication to the virtual server
clustered volume. As a test, I set up another job connecting to the
physical server's sys volume and an SMS communication was established
successfully.

What are we missing to establish the SMS communication to the virtual server?

Thanks,
Bryen

SCU Utility - the Conclusion

The Sequel has come to a conclusion:

The resolution is to create a volume object on the physical server that
points to the clustered volume on the same server. Then perform SCU tasks.
When complete, delete the physical volume object.

Disgusting when the answer is so simple, isn't it?

I also ran into this problem. I solved it by loading
the tsafs with the /cluster option.

I was able to switch back and forth and saw the problem
come and go.

Use /nocluster, can't see/copy cluster volumes with the
SCU.

Use /cluster I CAN see/copy cluster volumes.
