What is the recommended disk allocation unit size for CSV on Hyper-V cluster 2012R2 on 7mode 8.2.3




I couldn't find the recommended disk allocation unit size for  Windows 2012R2 Hyper-v clsuter CSV (2tb and above) created on iSCSI volume on Netapp filer 8.2.3 7mode. The default Windows block size is 4K, is it recommended to increasee the host allocation unit size to 64k or to keep at 4k. The VMs will be Windows 2012R2 guests, and no Exchange or SQL server will be running on them.


Thanks for the quick resposnse.
