I am planning to deploy HyperV 2012 failover cluster with two hosts in production.

1.) Is  there a way share the VM's between those two hosts  or do all of them need to be on one host.
2.) In production do we need quorum disk and a dedicated  private Nic  on each host  plugged to the other host for heart beat
3.) With VM's does configuration files and VM disk files need to be on the shared storage or just the VM disks

1. VMs, can be on multiple hosts.

2. Yes, the Quorum Disk is required, and Private NICs are recommended, but you can use Production Network for heartbeat.

3. All VM configuration would be on shared storage (Clustered Shared Volume)
