Michael Brown already answered it, just wanted to add: CSV is currently the best practice storage configuration for both Hyper-V, SQL FCI, and SoFS. 99% of the clustered systems I configure for the customers are built on CSV and remaining 1% uses DAG and AlwaysOn AG like BaronSamedi1958 mentioned above. Also,CSV now has a benefit of ODX (Offloaded Data ...

I don't have a solution for you but I kinda felt this deserves at least some sort of answer: To state the obvious, a machine is highly dependent on its storage. In a highly-available environment - where all VMs can run on any node - the nodes must all be able to see the storage for a VM otherwise they cannot be a host for that VM. So clustered shared ...
