After a few discussions (here, here, and here), I am still unable to create a simple VM that will be used as a fileserver hosted on my Hyper-V box. I have created a fixed 700GB SCSI drive (.vhd file), as I have learned an IDE drive of this size is not possible. Not to sound too cynical, but its blown me away at how much trouble its been to create a large amount of space and start using it.
What is the best way to create a fileserver with a drive of this size hosted on Hyper-V Server 2008, and how can I get it going???
Inclusion of OS, driver, integration tools etc, anything you feel is required would be greatly appreciated.
- I am using the stand-alone version of Hyper-V server, and not Windows Server 2008.
- I have tried loading the Linux Integration Tools (linked in the comments of the last link above) onto a SUSE 11 VM and the installation fails, the machine cannot see the vhd at all.
Thanks very much,
