You add share storage with the cluster manager -> add storage.
This is no longer under control by vmm.

To do so expand the hard disk by clicking the plus next to the hard drive. Click Advanced features, check Enable virtual hard disk sharing, and click OK.
the Enable virtual hard disk sharing will be grayed out. If this happens to you, you have two options: shut down the VM and enable sharing; or, you can remove the virtual hard disk, reattach it, and then enable sharing before clicking Apply.
