Symptoms

A physical disk resource does not bring online on Container-based fail-over cluster. The following error appears in cluster.log:

ERR  Physical Disk <Disk Q:>: Online: Unable to read the 'Signature' property from cluster database. Error: 13.

Resolution

The workaround is to locate the Physical disk resource GUID in the registry and manually add the Signature key and hex disk signature value as follows:

1. Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Cluster\Resources key locate the {GUID} for the physical disk resource you added;
2. Under the Parameters key, add a DWORD value called Signature. Assign it the HEX disk signature number.
3. You should now be able to bring the disk recourse Online in Cluster Administrator.
