  • Again, does your HBA vendor support virtual HBAs under Hyper-V?  Have to start with having hardware that supports what you are trying to do in software.

    You may also want to consider posting further questions about the efficacy of your solution to the SQL HA experts over in their forum located at https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=sqldisasterrecovery.  Yes, clustering SQL in VMs is fully supported, but I know some of the experts have strong opinions about better solutions, depending upon your requirements.

  • Does your HBA vendor support virtual fibre channel under Hyper-V?  That is the first requirement you need to determine.

    The recommended way to configure a Hyper-V cluster is to use shared virtual disks.  It is highly unlikely that you will obtain any better performance by using virtual fibre channel than by using shared virtual disks.  And to configuration and management is much more simple for shared virtual disks than for virtual fibre channel.  For virtual fibre channel, you need to define and manage twice as many connections from the VM to the storage.  Virtual fibre channel is available if it makes sense, but about the only place I ever used it was in a lab to see that it worked.  Never deployed a production system with it.

  • Hi Tim,

    Thanks for your reply.

    We are trying to do SQL Cluster on the guest OS, created LUN on the storage and connected Storage directly to 2 physical server using Fibre Channel, created virtual SAN in Hyper v and mapped for the VM. and starting the VM we are getting the error.

  • Hi Tim,

    I have checked HBA vendor is supported with Hyper v , but identified if we directly connect storage to Server, Virtual Fiber Channel will not work and we have connect via Switch.

  • Hi Danie,

     i got confirmation from our storage vendor, if we connect storage directly to server NPIV will not supported so we may need to go with SAN Switch, then only we can achieve this.
