Exchange 2013 File Share Witness on NetApp

Running a Exchange 2013 cluster, 2 nodes, on Windows 2012 R2.  The MSCS quorum is using a File Share Witness on a 3rd Windows Server.  Does anybody have any documentation that shows MS Exchange 2013 supports using a CIFS File Share Witness for Quorum on a NetApp CIFS server?  Running a simple ONTAP 8.3.2 CIFS SVM and already have 12+ SQL clusters using NetApp FSWs that are supported with no issue.

Hi,

 

Do you have a best practices document for setting up a windows file share witness on NetApp SVM running CIFS? We are on ONTAP 9.1P13

Actually just create a normal cifs share is fine, just make sure the network is stable, and all LIF is can be failover

How was your configuration for the SQL clusters running FSW? Do you have any specific settings on the share?
