  • Hello Max,

    It looks like you are trying to store your shared VHDX on a local D-drive, to be able to use a shared drive it must be stored on either: 

    • Cluster Shared Volumes (CSVs) on block storage (including clustered Storage Spaces).

    • Scale-Out File Server with SMB 3.0 on file-based storage.

    This means you will need a cluster with either a CSV or a Scale Out File Server (with a shared folder).

  • As noted by Leon, shared VHDs must reside on clustered shared volumes.  In other words, setting up shared VHDs is a function that is supported within an environment where the Hyper-V host nodes are in a Microsoft Failover Cluster.

    There is an unsupported way to get shared VHD on stand-alone Hyper-V servers.  It requires installing the cluster feature on the host and then manually mounting the filter driver to allow the sharing.  Mounting the filter driver is a manual step that must be done after each physical host reboot for this capability to work.  Again, note that this is unsupported, but it works fine in a lab environment.
