comment Install a SATA SSD in hot swap server
Does the drive show up in the RAID config? Either in lifecycle controller, Dell OpenManage software, or iDRAC? I could be wrong, but I don't think that controller does passthrough by default - so you have to configure the new drive before it will show up in windows.

comment How to setup monitoring of nodes behind firewall
Are you planning to install the monitoring system at the same location (just on the other side of a firewall), or would the monitoring system connect to the production network over the internet?

comment Two-Node Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Cluster: Is it possible use local physical disks in the cluster?
@gravyface To remove the VM from failover clusters, just right click it and add the choose remove. VM will still exist in hyper-v manager on the host. To put a VM back to failover cluster manager, right click Roles -> Configure Role -> Virtual Machine. All the non-clustered VMs will show up for you to import. Then you just have to move the storage.

@gravyface No, you can do it from failover manager and hyper-v manager. Just remove the VM from failover manager - now you have a non-clustered VM you can control in hyper-v manager. Add it back in failover manager and you are back to being clustered. Don't forget to move the disk/config files between local and SAN storage each time - failover cluster manager will not do it for you.

Take a look at this page: technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/jj134187.aspx You might be able to get it to work over SMB3, kind of (particularly, loopback connections are not supported - so you have to have the storage on a separate server from the host, thus 2 single points of failure). But it won't be at all highly available without shared storage, so you are better off just switching the VMs to not be clustered and moving to the local disk.
