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!

Try restarting WMI Service and Hyper-V services (all including dependencies) and then see if you get this error ?

Got this one a while a go and the following fixed it for me :

1. Open task manager
2. End WmiPrvSE.exe
3. Close task manager
4. Re-open Hyper-V Manager

I tried to restart the WMI Service and HyperV with no luck. I also tried to end all WMIPRVSE .EXE Tasks, which seem to start again right away. Still no luck.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

@glenn10 - Do you have McAfee installed on the host?

I think I may have found the issue...

I uninstalled McAfee 8.8 w/ p3 and looks like that fixed the issue. I was able to create a VM on the CSV.

Now the question is should I just disable McAfee from scanning the c:\storagecluster folder and reinstall?

Hi BayCCS

So I went into my EPO server edited the On-Access Default Processes Policy for VS 8.8 and created an item exclusion with the string "C:\ClusterStorage\*.* with the subfolders also excluded. With this I am still getting the error. If I uninstall McAfee 8.8 everything is good, but once installed it causes the above mess....

Is there anything else that I can exclude or add to the policy to prevent this?

Hi BAYCCS - try these additional exclusions for the cluster

•The path of the \mscs folder on the quorum hard disk. For example, exclude the Q:\mscs folder from virus scanning.
•The %Systemroot%\Cluster folder.
•The temp folder for the Cluster Service account. For example, exclude the \clusterserviceaccount\Local Settings\Temp folder from virus scanning.  (this one may not apply)

Unfortunately after some digging we found even though Mcafee patch 3 supports 2012, it doesnt support Hyper-V/Failover clustering. They hope to resolve this in Patch 4.

Sometimes i have such problems on my 8-node testing cluster. Also McAfee 88p3.
But before i could not place over 10 VMs on 1 Hypervisor. Now I can locate up to 16 VMs (48 Gb of RAM is only physical limit for me).
Workaround is  to Live Migrate VM to other node.
It works for me
