Cluster shared volume on SMB 3.0



We are deploing a hyper-v cluster based on Windows 2012 R2 and FAS2552 running Clustered ontap 8.3 with SMB 3.0 shares.


Is it posiible to use SMB 3 share as a storage for CSV (for mssqlserver cluster) ?



SMI-S is installed, and shares ware created by SCVMM.

answering mysefl,


no you can't


  • For Hyper-V over SMB solutions, use in-guest iSCSI drives when creating clustered virtual machines. Shared .VHDX files are not supported for Hyper-V over SMB in Data ONTAP CIFS shares.
