Hyper-V 2012 Stand Alone to Cluster

I need to create a Hyper-V 2012 cluster. I already have a stand-alone Hyper-V 2012 server attached to a SAN. Can I bring on a a second Hyper-V 2012 server and create a cluster without having to re-install Hyper-V on the first server? In other words, can I perform an in-place cluster upgrade on Hyper-V 2012?

Yep - just add the Failover Clustering feature.

This might help too...

That's how you do it, regardless it was already in use as a Hyper-V server or not. Take your second server and take it to the same point you have your current server (install ws2012, initial configuration, setup your NICs, connect your LUNs, install the Hyper-V role, etc.). Once you have your 2 perfectly functional Hyper-V hosts with configured NICs/FC cards and shared LUNs, add Failover Clustering and configure your 2 hosts as nodes.
