Dear All,

I would like to install my Exchange 2010 server in a hyper-v environment and I would like to configure the Pass through hard disk in the SAN with the exchange server.

I would like to ask, how the pass through hard disk will be move with the virtual machine hosted exchange 2010 when it’s fail over from one hyper-v server to another hyper-v server which they are configured as a cluster hyper-v environment.

Thanks

the passthrough disk is assigned as a resource in the cluster and dependant on the image

If you are interested in leveraging your SAN and Hyper-V clustering, you should strongly consider using Clustered Shared Volumes (CSV). Although it should be noted that Exchange high-availability options (i.e. DAGs) cannot be combined with virtual machine high-availability (Live Migration).

If you are running a single Exchange Server than I believe you can get away with allowing the VM to Live Migrate, but if you are considering the implementation of Database Availability Groups, you should reconsider your VM high-availability plans.
