I'm trying to setup a test Failover cluster within Hyper-V using Windows 2012 R2, we currently have hosts using shared storage via SMB so all drives within a VM point to \\SERVER\SHARE\VM NAME\.
So I setup a test failover cluster and when I try to live migrate one VM from one host to another host that is in the failover cluster it gets to 100% and finishes but the VM stays on the same host. If I try to Quick Migrate the VM it moves but it fails with an error :-
"Cluster resource 'Virtual Machine Configuration Test VM' of type 'Virtual Machine Configuration' in clustered role 'Test VM' failed. The error code was '0x2' ('The system cannot find the file specified.').
Based on the failure policies for the resource and role, the cluster service may try to bring the resource online on this node or move the group to another node of the cluster and then restart it. Check the resource and group state using Failover Cluster Manager or the Get-ClusterResource Windows PowerShell cmdlet."
Even though the server is using a UNC path for the hard drive location which is accessible to both servers it fails to move over...
Am I missing something? Any help would be most welcome.!
