I am trying to setup Guest Clustering in Hyper-V 3.0 so I can utilize the live migration feature and I am finding that it is not letting me do MPIO in San Manager.  Is this a limitation of Hyper-V or what am I missing?

Thanks

All you need for MPIO, is two nics, different subnets, two iSCSI targets, a single LUN.

specify the IP Address of the SAN, and select Multipath when establishing a connection.

What SAN are you using, because SAN Vendors, can have software packages to help you integrate Windows 2012 iSCSI to the SAN.

it's all configured under the iSCSI Initiator in the Control Panel or via Powershell.

Fiber should be easier, but you should use the MPIO Kit, with your HBAs. e.g. Emulex, Qlogic

make sure the fabric, fibre channel switches are configured and zoned correctly.
