I'm considering rolling out DR replication of our VMs to a secondary datacenter (both managed by us), but we have some critical services that are held on guest level SQL Server clusters using shared storage I think might be a problem.
Some of the guest clusters use in-guest iSCSI disks as the shared storage and others use hyper-v Shared VHDX as shared storage. I've been trying to find details of whether these are supported, best I have been able to find is that guest iSCSI is not supported, but.... shared VHDX is? Looking to get some feedback from the community on the viability of this
"before you ask" disclaimer
Unfortunately we can't drop the shared storage and there is lots of configuration on the servers themselves that change on a weekly basis meaning the only way to do DR on them without having complex maintenance tasks of updating the recovery scripts after every change. So getting rid of the shared storage is not viable.
Can you replicate (and failover/failback) from a private primary DC to a secondary private DC a VM using a guest level WSFC (windows failover cluster) utilizing shared VHDX as the shared storage?
I'll be monitoring this thread every 1/2 hour so I can reply to any questions quickly.
