SO I have a difficult question to explain. I have a hyper v cluster with two host. All of my disks are connected iSCSI and the VHD files reside on the SAN. Now on both host I have iSCSI connections to disks that are not being used by the VM but as a network share. I do not have a file server so I have the file server role on both my host. My issue is when one host goes down for maintenance or whatever, my clients lose the connection to the disk that had those file shares. Unless I bring the disk online on the other host however this requires remapping them to the other hosts IP address for network name.
Is there a better way to do this. These disk have the files copied to the SAN at the file level so there isn't a VHD that I can mount to one of the VM's to prevent this. Is there a way to share these disk's via the cluster somehow? I was thinking i would create a VM file server but then how do I attach these disks since they are files and not a VHD file?
