Quick question regarding Exchange on Hyper-V, I havn't been able to iron out all the questions regarding the support for Exchange on Hyper-V where the .VHDX files resides on the backed SMB3 part.
From a Microsoft stand-point they support .VHDX files on SMB3 as long as it's backed by block storage, but I havn't been able to verify that Nutanix actually goes under the "Block-Storage" part, on my own mind it should.
There are a few documents where Exchange on Hyper-V is mentioned, and in those SMB3 and iSCSI are both mentioned but no on what part (SMB3 for OS, iSCSI for Databases or in fact VHDX on SMB3 for databases also).
VMWare is rather straight forward, Volume Groups to be fully supported by Microsoft, period.
But what is the stand-point regarding Exchange on Hyper-V where databases are .VHDX on SMB3 from a Microsoft and Nutanix perspective?
