A. Yes. Some clustered resources only support an Active/Passive configuration, where there is at least one node in the cluster not running any resources. With Hyper-V, you can and often will have virtual machines (VMs) running on all nodes in a cluster without any node running idle. You should ensure that there is some spare capacity on each node so that if a node fails, its VMs can be distributed to the cluster's remaining nodes.
- Q. If I have multiple physical network cards associated with different virtual switches in my Hyper-V cluster, how does Hyper-V know which virtual switch to map the virtual NIC to during a node move?
- Q. What's the relationship between a virtual switch and a physical NIC? Should each virtual machine (VM) have its own virtual switch?
- Q. Why shouldn't I share the management NIC on Hyper-V with virtual machines (VMs)?
- Q. How can I perform a physical to virtual (P2V) migration with System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2008?
