I got a question that i can't seem to find an answer for.  When using hyper-v failover cluster services you can create a high available share or other service or application.  This confuses me.  What does this acomplish?  For instance, whats the difference if i create a file share thru the failover cluster manager, or create a file share on the shared storage the virtual server running on the cluster is using?

is there something more highly available about it?

So what your saying is... a HA share isn't tied to a windows server?  it's tied to the cluster?

Commented:
it is not bound to a particular node in a cluster rather it becames a application servicable anywhere within the cluster.
