For the Failover Clustering feature in Windows Server R2, refer to the previous article. In a failover cluster in Windows Server R2, the available clustered file servers are mainly:

1. Scale-out File server (scale-out file server) for application data: This type of clustered file server was introduced in Windows Server 2012, allowing you to store server application data on file shares, such as Hyper-V virtual machine files. and gain similar levels of reliability, availability, manageability, and the expected high performance from your storage area network. All file shares are online and located on all nodes. File shares associated with such clustered file servers are referred to as scale-out file shares. This is sometimes referred to as an activity/activity.

2. General purpose File Server: This type of server is a continuation of a clustered file server that has been supported by Windows server since the introduction of the failover cluster. This type of server belongs to a clustered file server, so all shares associated with the clustered file server are online and on one node at the same time. This is sometimes referred to as active/passive or dual activity. File shares associated with this type of clustered file server are known as clustered file shares.

This article mainly demonstrates how to build a highly available SMB3.0 file server and create a Hyper-V virtual machine into a SMB3.0-based shared folder.

1. Log in to the iSCSI Target Server "bj-ss-01", open Server Manager, click on files and storage, click iSCSI, click on the task on the right, select new virtual hard disk

2. Specify the name and description of the iSCSI virtual disk name, and click Next
