Sometimes I get this error in the Event manager of my Windows Server 2016  HyperV host.
It looks like Data Sharing Service is failing.
I am not 100% sure why it is failing and where do I use Data Sharing service?

Currently this service is not Started and set to be started Manually.
What is the preferred settings for this service?

Thank you very much for detailed explanation. I really appreciate that.
Since I am not using Clustering in this environment, is it safe to start the service and make it to Start automatically to eliminate Error in the event log?

Thank you

I think Yes, but sometimes it's better get error in event log if you know what is about and safe server resources by not running services that you'll never use.

Decision is your :)
