Error :SQL Server 2005 cluster config and trying to move database to a different drive/create a database “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”

For the SQL Server resource we need to add a dependency of the drive to which we are moving the database and log files.
1. Right click the SQL Server resource under Groups and click Properties.
2. Click on dependency tab and add the disk LUN.
Note : You will need to take the resource group offline to accomplish this solution and bring it back online once the change has been completed.
