  • Hi Yaseen,

    Yes, you can. 

    Refer to:

    Exchange 2016 virtualization -- Host machine storage requirements 

    If your host machine is running Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V or Hyper-V 2012, and you are configuring a host-based failover cluster that will host Exchange Mailbox servers in a database availability group, then we recommend following the guidance documented in Microsoft Knowledge Base article, 2872325, Guest Cluster nodes in Hyper-V may not be able to create or join.
