Creating a cluster while we still have some machines running outside of the cluster (and replicating outside of the cluster) I tried to setup replication outside of the cluster for a testmachine while the cluster was active. This isn't supposed to work as a replication broker is needed and the expected result was a message saying that replication needs to go by the broker.
Instead in my situation of 1 node in the cluster, 1 node not in the cluster, no replication broker created, I got the message:
A Hyper-V Replica Broker needs to be created on the failover cluster "..." Create the Hyper-V Replica Broker using Failover Cluster Manage and try again. If you are using the IsBrokerOptional registry key, retry the operation directly from the WMI or through a management suite of your choice.
I have been looking for any information about this IsBrokerOptional registry key but can't find any.
Anyone ran into this also?
In all honesty it would make life a lot easier if we could replicate VM's on clusternodes outside of the cluster, and thus use cheaper, DAS storage of any sort. (JBOD in our case)
