This is part 2 of setting up a Hyper-V Cluster for Windows Server 2012 and placing Virtual Machines into a Hyper-V Custer on Windows Server 2012.  There is so much new stuff to show you that I broke this video into two parts.  Part 1 will walk through the hardware setup and the actual cluster wizard.  Part 2 will take over after the cluster is created and walks through the validation report and cluster configuration and putting VMs into the cluster.



Here is some reference material that will help you with setting up your Windows Server 2012 Cluster.

  1. This is a very helpful series on Hyper-V Clusters. Hyper-V "virtual" disks are portable and scalable and the clustering helps remove hot spots and levels the load.

    Really great info!

    Great video. Everything that I read says to make sure that there is nothing on the shared volumes when creating a cluster because you will lose the data, but apparently that is not the case. Can you confirm that I can create a cluster using a shared volume that already has machines on it in 2012?
