Where to keep VHD files (In a shared location or in hyper-v servers itself)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are trying to create and migrate virtual machines in hyperV servers programmatically. Our idea is to keep the VHD files in a shared location and make the virtual machines up in the physical servers by accessing the shared location. Also when migrating a virtual machine from one server to another, the VHD files won’t be moved. The server1 will release the VHD file and Server 2 will access it to activate the VM.

    Is this the right approach?


    Or shall we keep the VHD files in the hyper-V servers? If so, how will we move VHD file from one server to other when migrating?


    Please advice.
