I am trying to set up a lab that implements Windows Server 2012 R2 as a means to provide multiple services to a business.
I have successfully deployed instances of Active Directory running on Windows Server 2012 R2 with two instances of Domain Controllers. In both instances, the DCs run on stand alone hardware.
I have introduced another Windows Server 2012 R2 with the HyperV role (aka "parent"). I use the Windows Server 2012 R2 Storage Pool functionality to create a virtual shared drive on this server. It has a volume, and appears in Windows Explorer as (Y:). I can also implement a virtual machine using the HyperV Manager application.
But I am stuck on the process to create a shared drive on the virtual machine that uses the same Storage Pool that I created on the parent HyperV server. I want to use three SATA drives in the existing storage pool (created above) as the source of the virtual machine's virtual hard drive. In effect, I want the three SATA drives to be in the same storage pool that the parent also uses. And I want to be able to use this existing storage pool as the source of any other VM/VHDs that run on this parent.
Can this be done? If so, how?
