Hi experts,

I configured a two nodes Hyper-V cluster and I was able to successfully shared the storage on both nodes in the cluster.

I created a third VM and installed server 2012 R2 and the Virtual Machine Manager Console.  When I go to create a VM from the VMMC I am not able to see the shared storage.

I tried to add the storage in the VMMC but no luck.

Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong ?

No, I want  to to create new VMs in the Hyper-V Cluster. Yes, I am referring to SCVMM and I am using a administrator account.

SVMM is a pain to setup properly

I was able to figure out the problem. I need to select the option to make the VM a HA VM. Once I did this the cluster storage location was presented to my new VM.

Thanks
