Hyper V / FCM CSV migrations
Posted on 2012-03-16
I have a Server 2008 r2 sp1 Hyper V 2 node cluster. All software is up to date.
We are connected to our Netapp SAN via iSCSI.
Historically we had our Virtual guests in a 1:1 vol/lun ratio, each volume on our storage contained 1 lun and each lun had a unique drive letter assigned to it.
As the story goes we started to run out of drive letters so I researched Cluster Shared Volumes and liked what I found so I implemented them. The CSV config went well and we are running 25% of our VM's on CSV's. I can move and live migrate the 1:1 vol/lun VM's we have, but are looking to upgrade everything to CSV.
The problem I am having is moving or Live Migrating the CSV's. The CSV VM's fail at the end of the migration and Move back to the host I was trying to move them from. The only way I can move the CSV's is to shutdown > move > start. In Failover cluster manager I think the failure happens because the "Current Owner" under Cluster Shared Volumes does not change.
I have tried both from SCVMM and Failover Cluster Manager same result with both.
I have added dedicated Live Migration NIC's and set the metrics and roles on all nics appropriately.
All Networks in FCM have the same name.
I have exhausted my novice CSV knowledge and would appreciate any help!
