New HyperV Cluster and VMM 2012 Questions

Hello,
I am currently in the middle of setting up a new Server 2012 cluster with 3 nodes and I successfully created a 2TB volume to use for the Cluster Shared Volume and a 1GB Quorum space on my PS6100. All three nodes are clustered and I am ready for me to move on to my next task witch it to get SCVMM installed and configured.

My question is, and I should have thought about this before now but, do I just load VMM on the active node or do I use a separate server for VMM?

Thanks,
-Mike

Use a seperate server for VMM, it can be a virtual server, you will also need to use an SQL database, either Express or Full version.

Don't forget to use System Center 2012 SP1 for Windows 2012.

Would I create a virtual VMM host on the cluster? I don't have any other machines really that can handle HyperV. This is really interesting, I can't find any documentation on this, if I do a Google search it seems to point me to install VMM on the cluster and not a virtual.

We actually prefer to use VMM on a physical or virtual dedicated server.

VMM if its unavailable does not prevent Hyper-V VMs from functioning. We like to keep the host free ofbany software other than Hyper-V roles, Failover Clustering roles, and then we remove gui, so its just Server Core running.

@hanccocka - Thank you for your input and help!

Okay so I ran into another issue and I am hoping that you can help. I created the cluster added a 100GB volume to the storage to use for a Virtual Machine. I then made the 100GB volume a CSV and can see the volume located in the c:\ClusterStorage folder.

My problem is when I try to create a VM on the CSV it failes with the error The computer "localhost" failed to perform the requested operation because it is out of memory or disk space. When I try to create a virtual on a none CSV disk it seems to work fine. What could I be missing, I have been trying to fiqure this one out for a few hours now with no luck... Call me insane b/c I keep doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result... :)

Thanks for your help and time!
