Hyper-V VMs on an NFS share on Windows Server 2016 – is that real?
Posted by Sergey Sanduliak on September 26, 2017

A few years ago, we have tried to place a VM on an NFS share. We used Windows Server 2012 because Hyper-V is a native hypervisor from Microsoft.

Now we have decided to reproduce the experiment on Windows Server 2016. Just because of boundless curiosity 😊

So, we have 2 nodes: S3n11 serves as NFS Fileserver and S3n12 takes the Hyper-V server role.

We will do exactly the same thing as we did before, but this time on Windows Server 2016 on both VMs.

Let’s start!
