I am coming from a VMware background and have been presented with a Hyper-V 2012 R2 setup.
Using Hyper-V replication to the Disaster Recovery "DR" site, the EMC VNXe3150 SAN at that site can have datastores only at 2TB max each .. I need to be able to present a larger than 2TB datastore to the DR Hyper-V hosts to allow a server to replicate properly. (The SAN at the production site is a HP which has ~6TB datastores defined).
In VMware I would have tried to join an extent onto the datastore but cannot find this functionality on Hyper-V.
Server 1 total size = 2.0TB + replication overhead = 2.14TB
-Hosts on production, this is no problem as datastores of 6TB exist
-Hosts at DR have multiple datastores but limited to 2TB each... hence cannot replicate Server 1 successfully.
-Hosts are using clustered storage (CSV)
-Would like to join 2x2TB datastores together to make a single 4TB one at DR site
Any help appreciated.
Note this is on the host level, not storage for an individual VM.
