Shared VHDX for Guest Clusters using SMB 3.0

LiveAverage

Just curious if there's any word of supporting Shared VHDX's for guest clusters when running SMB 3.0 as backend storage for Hyper-V clusters? Has anyone else hit this roadblock? SMB3 is great for general VM storage, but there still needs to be some way, preferably with non-block storage, to create shared guest storage for satisfying guest cluster needs? Any information on what others are doing would be helpful. Thanks,

Hi!

 

Did you figure it out?

As I understand you need SMB3.02 support, but maybe that´s changed.

Unforunately I never got it to work. I believe it's only supported using Microsoft's native SMB 3.0 -- never got it going with our NetApp filers.
