Attaching disks(windows 8 Pro) to hyper-v client(server 2008)
Posted on 2014-01-17
I am still a bit confused about this, so if you have experience of running server os as hyper-v guest on windows 8 pc, please let me know.
Host: Windows 8.1 Pro
Guest: Widnows 2008 Server R2.
I"m in the middle of migrating a physical server to hyper-v geust. What I encountered is the RAID 10 volumn currently on the physical server(Windows 2003 64bit). The volume is data volume seperate from OS volume and runs on a PCI-E RAID controller. Soon, I'll take this controller and disks to a new box which will run Hyper-V client(windows 2008 R2) in Windows 8.1 Pro host pc.
How do I make sure the migrated RAID 10 volume is not be blocked by the number of concurrent file access limit of Windows 8? Somehow, I have to make sure this volume is only recognized by the hyper-v client.
In previous post, I think NTFS is preserved, but now I'm back to the question if the 10 concurrent access limit will not be effective to server guest os through client host os.
So in short, how do I attach volume directly to the server 2008 hyper-v guest bypassing windows 8?
