How does the nodes in a Hyper V cluster know what network interface to use for Live migration?


I know that it is always recommended to have a separated network interface dedicated to vm migration and heartbeat between the hosts in a hyper V cluster.

My question is, how does each node of the cluster knows that live migrations will need to be through this dedicated interface?

Is there extra configuration involve so the nodes are aware?

Open Failover Cluster Manager and have a look under the Networks node. One can assign LM network priorities there.
