I'm about to create for the first time a Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V R2 failover cluster and then a Cluster Shared Volume.
I've been readin on Technet and also the book "Mastering Microsoft Virtualization" But there is something i'm not really sure about: networking.
So far here is what I've done
2x Network adapters have been assigned to iSCSI (10.10.10.0 255.255.0.0) All targets have been added so the SAN is already seen by the hosts.
1x Network adapter for MANAGEMENT (10.0.1.1 255.255.0.0)
2x Network adapters assigned to the CLUSTER COMMUNICATION or HEARTBEAT (192.168.100.0 255.255.255.0)
2x Network adapters assigned to CLIENT COMMUNICATION (on the same subnet than MANAGEMENT)
The failover validation test is passed.
1 - As far as I know I must add the networks MANAGEMENT, CLUSTER COMMUNICATION, CLIENT ACCESS AND iSCSI to the failover Cluster. But how the Failover cluster is assigning it ? There is no option to specify that de Heartbeat is the Hearbeat.
2 - When time comes to enable CSV, do I need to assign another Network adapter to it ? The author of the book "Mastering Microsoft Virtualization" says "the only cost to implement HA for Hyper-V is the cost of additional networking'
Afterwards it jumps to the configuration and the only setps are to enable CSV, there is nothing about networking. That told, this book is very helpful compared to Technet.
