Best Practice for Window 2012 Hyper-V Cluster with Multi-Subnets (VLAN’s)
Posted on 2013-10-28
I have a three host Windows 2012 Hyper-V cluster with multiple VLAN’s. Currently I have two virtual switches configured on all hosts.
Since there is no way (that I can find) to configure a new virtual switch through the Failover Cluster Manager, the additional virtual switch was configured through Hyper-V Manager (which was done on all three hosts). However the cluster only sees our 2nd virtual switch on one host I cannot find a way to make the 2nd switch cluster aware.
The issue I have is that when I move a VM between hosts I need to disable networking on the VM or the move fails with the following error:
“Cluster resource 'Virtual Machine Test-2008R2-1' of type 'Virtual Machine' in clustered role 'Test-2008R2-1' failed. The error code was '0x80004005' ('Unspecified error').”
After many hours of research, my question is what is the best way to set up a Hyper-V Cluster with multiple VLAN’s? Through switch port trucking and making the VM’s VLAN aware or through making virtual switches Cluster aware?
Thanks for your help,
