SYMPTOMS

When you try to create a cluster file share resource in a Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based cluster, you receive the following error message:
System error 87 has occurred (0X00000057)
The parameter is incorrect.
This problem occurs if you try to create the cluster file share resource by using the NT path of a folder. For example, this problem occurs if you use the following NT path to try to create the cluster file share resource:
\\?\GlobalRoot\Device\harddiskvolume1\share

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the Cluster service does not accept an NT path when you create a cluster file share resource.
