Just wondered if anyone has come across a similar issue to myself.
I've setup a pretty simple hyper-v environment with 2 hyper-v servers in a failover cluster connected to our iscsi storage. This is working quite nicely, all the VMs are stored in the cluster shared volume located in its default location c:\clusterstorage
Having a really weird problem! I'm trying to clone a VM into c:\clusterstorage but i'm getting a lack of disk space error message at the bottom of this post.
The cluster shared volume is online and has a total of 1.5tb free space so there isn't a disk space issue, but the C: drive of the OS (the only thing on c: is the hyper-v OS) wouldn't have enough space to host this VM which would make sense for the error message. (70gb free on c:, total size of VM to clone is about 70gb)
Problem is - should the free space on C: include the amount of free space in the CSV, making the total free space on C: over 1.5tb!
The CSV isn't assigned to a drive letter btw, the only volume assigned to drive letters is the C: and the witness disk/Quorum, Q:
There is insufficient disk space on the volume C:\ to complete placement of the virtual machine.
Free 406.00 MB of disk space on the volume C:\, or choose a different volume to continue with the placement.

Are you sure that the VM that you are trying to place has been marked as Highly Available?
It appears that VMM is trying to place the VMM using local storage (c:\) instead of the shared storage you have added (c:\clusterstorage). HA VMs can only use shared storage, and non-HA VMs can only use local storage.
I hope this helps you!

As Hilton pointed , You should create VM as High Available.

Thanks for the response.
I wasn't able to mark an existing VMs as HA so I wasn't able to try that.
To solve my problem I reduced the size of the VM (Remove some old snapshots) so it was less than the free space available on the C: which seemed to be a suitable workaround.
Any new VMs i'll make as HA and see if that helps in the future.
Thanks for the help.
