Hyper-V VMs almacenadas en SMB 3.0

Hola.

Entre las novedades que trae Hyper-V 3.0 parece que la posibilidad de almacenar máquinas virtuales en SMB es una de las más esperadas.

Os dejo el link oficial al respecto, atentos a lo que hay que tener en cuenta, en concreto:

Using Hyper-V with SMB has the following requirements:

  • One or more computers running Windows Server 2012 with the Hyper-V role installed. You can also use non-Microsoft file servers that implement the SMB 3.0 protocol.
  • One or more computers running Windows Server 2012 with the File and Storage Services role installed.
  • A common Active Directory infrastructure. The servers running Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) do not need to run Windows Server 2012.

Considerations when using Hyper-V with SMB

  • An Active Directory infrastructure is required, so you can grant permissions to the computer account of the Hyper-V hosts.
  • The file server must have Windows Server 2012 installed, so the new SMB 3.0 protocol is available. You can also use non-Microsoft file servers that implement the SMB 3.0 protocol. Hyper-V does not block older versions of SMB, however, the Hyper-V Best Practice Analyzer issues an alert when an older version of SMB is detected.
  • Loopback configurations (where the computer that is running Hyper-V is used as the file server for virtual machine storage) are not supported.
