We are in process of trying to plan our Hyper V installation in 2 locations. We wanted to get some feedback on how we can accomplish a HA Hyper V server with shared storage at HQ and a Hyper V server at a remote site connected by a VPN tunnel?

We are just looking for ideas on how to implement remote sites using Hyper V. We currently use Citrix, but with the move going towards Hyper V, just trying to get some ideas or if someone knows a good site/book explaining this process.

Thanks for everyones help again.

While this may be technically possible, it's a bad, bad idea. Storage systems require consistent, low-latency connections. That is not going to be possible over a VPN connection. If you want HA, you'll likely need to investigate volume replication between sites with VM failover.
