Redirected Access Error Corrected

Hi guys now we have a fix issued by Microsoft to solve the error using McAfee with Hyper-v on 2008 R2 sp1

http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2012/03/18/fixed-cluster-shared-volumes-csv-in-redirected-access-mode-after-installing-mcafee-vse-8-7-patch-5-or-8-8-patch-1.aspx

Try to homologate it on Hyper-v cluster with the last version of McAfee antivirus

1. reinstall McAfee antivirus on hyper-v cluster

2. simulate the “redirected access” error (when all disks on all hosts enter on redirected access)

3. apply the KB issued by Microsoft
