Is it a problem if all of your test-VMs live on the same host (will they fit)?If you can put them all on the same host - I would create a new Private switch an connect the test-VMs to this private switch. On Hyper-V, this is a switch that allows VMs on the same host to talk to each other but not anything else on the network. I assume AHV has a similar offering. In this case, you don't have to reIP because the traffic never leaves the Private switch.
Thanks for the reply but I think you may have missed my concern. Unless I'm mistaken, we are not able to resize disks that belong to a Volume Group without taking the Failover Cluster offline - that's what is preventing us from using NTX Block Services in our fialover clusters. Am I mistaken and we can resize these disks while they're being used? **Edit** Just saw your second reply. Thank you. We are very much looking forward to that hot-expand as we're currently able to do this with our Luns that reside on our NetApp and Equilogic SANs.
As an existing customer, the lack of online expansion of volume-group disks is preventing us from killing the SAN all together (windows failover clusters). Do we expect this feature to come in the next or a near-future release? Specifically for Hyper-V customers. -E
