I'm receiving a Virtual Disk Service (VDS) error when trying to create a file share on a clustered file server resource group. What's wrong?

A. If you try to create a share on a cluster that's being hosted on the non-local node you might receive a VDS error related to firewall configuration. To enable the creation of shares on a file server cluster resource, the cluster management tool must be able to perform volume management on the owning node, which means the node must have the Remote Volume Management exception enabled on each node:
1. On each cluster node, start the Windows Firewall Control Panel applet (Start - Control Panel - Windows Firewall) .
2. Click Change settings.
3. Click the Exception tab, select the Remote Volume Management check box.
4. Click OK.
