How to built a virtual cluster within Hyper-V

Hi all,
i want to setup a Hyper-V host for an test environment. This test environment should contain a Failover Cluster. Therefore i Need two virtual machines which use the same vhd-disk as a Cluster ressource.
In vmware environments i can configure a virtual disk for shared use . Is there any possibility to do something like this in Hyper-V Environment?

You can't share a VHD between VMs in Hyper-V, even in 2012.  Assuming you don't have a Fibre Channel SAN – 2012 Hyper-V can virtualize FC adapters – your best (possibly only) option for guest clustering is to create an additional VM, install an iSCSI target on it, and use the iSCSI Initiator on the cluster nodes to connect to its storage.
