With AHV-20190916.189, Nutanix supports Directly Attached Volume Groups in a Guest VM Cluster. On AHV clusters, you can create a guest VM cluster by directly attaching a volume group to guest VMs.

After you attach a volume group to guest VMs, vDisks appear as SCSI devices to the guest operating system and you do not need to set up any in-guest connections when you are creating a guest cluster. If you directly attach volume groups to guest VMs, you can seamlessly share vDisks across VMs in the guest cluster.

You can directly attach a volume group to guest VMs to create the following guest clusters:

1. Microsoft Failover Cluster (MSFT)

2. Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Cluster
