Change mount point of CSV


  • Hello All,

    simple question that I can't seem to find an answer to: how do I change the mount point of a CSV in a way that SCVMM picks it up correctly?

    I'm setting up a new cluster. When adding CSVs through SCVMM these are all added as \Volume1...n. How can I change this to something more descriptive before deploying VMs?

    Thx in advance!

  • Andy,

    thx for the reply, but what's the syntax for the MountPoint parameter when adding CSV's? Is it the relative path to the mount point under the "ClusterStorage" directory or do I specify the full path?

    In other words is it:

    Mount-SCStorageDisk (.. other parameters..) -CreateClusterSharedVolume -MountPoint "\myMountPoint"


    Mount-SCStorageDisk (.. other parameters..) -CreateClusterSharedVolume -MountPoint "C:\ClusterStorage\myMountPoint"

    or something else?
