Question

MSCS (Microsoft Server Cluster)


Does AHV supports MSCS ? I am aware about two node windows cluster with witness VM mentioned in below :

But just want to confirm if it supports MSCS with shared storage including quorum?

i think using iSCSI Volume Group you can have a shared storage over network for Quorum and other data for your VM's
i am currently using it in ESXi, but i think it should be the same concept in AHV.
Hi Rekha,,

You can use volume group which is Nutanix Volumes (ABS) for this use case, Nutanix volumes uses scsi-3 persistence for MSCS, You can use data services ip as iscsi target without using iscsi mpio.
