If I have a 2008 Enterprise Core server hosting some VM's can I host cluster that to a HyperV Core Server box?

Yes, you are supposed to be able to do it as long as you are running the same version (2008 SP2, or 2008 R2), and the Enterprise is running Core. It sounds like you are meeting the requirments. You can NOT cluster Enterprise Full with Hyper-V Server, because the former is Full and the latter is Core.

Thanks for the link however the forum is 'Ask the Core Team' but it's not really a forum. I've posted a message to the author but I have no idea if the author will reply or turnaround time. So if you are not aware of an answer for this I would like to Request Attention and perhaps find an Expert who might have an answer from their own experience/knowledge.

Thanks for the info.  So as long as my  2008 Enterprise is Core server I can host cluster with HyperV server which is by default Core only - that makes sense.  Do you have any links in regard to that? I looked quite a bit but couldn't find any.

I remember reading about it, but I can't find any links. I am only using Hyper-V Server in my cluster. It shouldn't be too hard to try. I just don't have any spare equipment to test with.

I haven't tried it but I talked to a colleague who has and they said it worked so I'll take their word. Thanks for the responses.
