Server 2012: Failover Cluster configuration – HA File Share cannot see source path
September 28, 2012

File Server is one of the roles for Microsoft Failover Cluster. There is a convenient GUI wizard to add and configure the role.
Issue: When you create an HA share on File Server Cluster resource you cannot add any path to host it.
Resolution: Either run Failover Cluster management console from the node currently hosting File Server resource storage, or move the File Server resource to get Failover Cluster Management Console and the storage on the same node.
Note: I observed the issue on a full GUI version of the Server, interesting how it works with core and remote console?
