  • SCSI: If you are using iSCSI, each clustered server should have one or more network adapters or HBAs that are dedicated to the cluster storage. The network you use for iSCSI should not be used for network communication. In all clustered servers, the network adapters you use to connect to the iSCSI storage target should be identical, and we recommend that you use Gigabit Ethernet or higherFor iSCSI, network adapter teaming (also called load balancing and failover, or LBFO) is not supported. You can consider using MPIO software instead.To use the native disk support included in Failover Clustering, use basic diskWe recommend that you format the partitions with NTFS. If you use Cluster Shared Volumes (CSVs), the partition for each of those must be NTFSConsider using Storage Spaces: If you plan to deploy serial attached SCSI (SAS) clustered storage configured using Storage Spaces in Windows Server 2012, the following are requirements: A clustered storage pool made up of at least three SAS-connected physical disk drives, each with at least 4 GB capacity. The physical disks used for a clustered storage pool must be dedicated to that pool. Startup disks should not be added.Fixed provisioning of the storage pool.Either simple or mirror storage spaces. Parity spaces are not supported.
  • Non-disruptive testing of workload – zero downtimeTest any recovery pointPre-configure isolated network
  • At this time, CSVs do not support the Microsoft SQL Server clustered workload.Improvement:-CHKDSKInteroperate with AV and backupBitLocker-encrypted volumesStorage Spaces
  • Storage and disks must meet the following requirements:NTFS format A disk or storage space for a CSV must be a basic disk that is partitioned with NTFS. A CSV has the following additional requirements:You cannot use a disk for a CSV that is formatted with FAT, FAT32, or Resilient File System (ReFS).If you want to use a storage space for a CSV, you can configure a simple space or a mirror space. CSVs do not support parity spaces.A CSV cannot be used as a quorum witness disk. After you add a disk as a CSV, it is designated in the CSVFS format (for CSV File System). This allows the cluster and other software to differentiate the CSV storage from other NTFS storage. Generally, CSVFS supports the same functionality as NTFS. However, certain features are not supported. For example, you cannot enable data deduplication or compression on a CSV.
  • For an equivalent clustered virtual machine, you should organize the volumes and files in a similar way:System files, including a page file, in a VHD file on one CSVData files in a VHD file on another CSIf the cluster nodes are connected to networks that should not be used by the cluster, you should disable them. For example, we recommend that you disable iSCSI networks for cluster use to prevent CSV traffic on those networks. To disable a network, in Failover Cluster Manager, click Networks, click the network, click the Properties action, and then select Do not allow cluster network communication on this network.
