  • Hi,

    Do you want to cluster your hyper-v hosts? Or cluster your guest VM? Yes, it can be done.

    You need to install Failover Clustering feature on your  hosts. Then begins with a host, launch Failover Clustering Manager and follow the configuration wizard. It should be easy.

    Please read from this for more information

  • Hi,

    To cluster your Hyper-V hosts and create VMs within, you also need external storage like SAN or iSCSi which can shared by hosts at the same time.

  • As already mentioned above some shared storage is needed to create a Failover Cluster. This might be an external SAN or NAS. Alternatively, you can use local drives for this purpose like Storage Spaces Direct does but since it is only available in Windows Server 2016 you can use a free 3rd party alternative like StarWind VSAN https://www.starwindsoftware.com/starwind-virtual-san-free.
