Server 2012 R2 - High avaliability VMSs without shared storage
Posted on 2015-01-07
I have 2 hyper-v hosts, each with local storage. One host will contain a Vm which will act as a file and print server, serving file shares for documents etc. I want make this VM as highly available as possible so that if it goes down, I can switch over to the second host.
From what I have read, most clustering scenarios in Windows server 2012 R2 require separate hardware for shared storage however I am hoping that there is a better solution out there that will allow me to utilize just the 2 hosts with local storage.
