Is there any way i can use a cifs share as my shared storage in windows 2008 clustering? Im using hyper-v with my virtual machines on cifs shares and would like to protefct them using clustering. Is this possible?

Failover Clustering requires block level storage, such as SAS, iSCSI, or Fibre Channel.

I get the feeling that you are looking for a cheap (utilizing existing infrastructure) solution to a complicated environment. That being the case I would recommend iSCSI. You can either get an iSCSI drive chassis, this will allow you to create and map to iSCSI targets. You also could go with a software solution (there are some free ones) which will allow you to create iSCSI targets on an existing file server (I do not recommend this for production but works fine for testing). I personally have tried StarWind and it worked fine in a virtual cluster I was building, again I would not recommend it for production (simply because you would be better off building up a hardware solution).
