Whitepaper or best practice for Microsoft Cluster service using a File share witness

customer wants to install a MS windows 2012 cluster in an VMware (ESXi V5.5) environment using a file share witness as a quorum. The storage is a V6240 (serial: 200000635057) NetApp Ontap 8.2.4P5 (7-Mode). I need to know, if it is supported and if yes, under which conditions.


Do you have a whitepaper or best practice document for that?

 

Thanks Carsten

Carsten -

 

Although we teach this in our MSSQL on NetApp classes, I wassn't able to find a NetApp TR with discussion.

 

 

Best reference I can find for you is from Microsoft:

I hope this response has been helpful to you.

 

At your service,
