I'm using Hyper-V remote management from a management/file server to control 3 Hyper-V core servers. Now I want to store all the virtual disks and virtual machines on a SMB share on the management server. Currently all the servers are in a workgroup, my question is, is the correct way of doing this to create an AD on the management server, join it with the core servers and then create the SMB shares?
EDIT: Now I've created an AD and joined with one of the core servers. I've then added the core server computer to the permissions of the share but I get a General access denied error when trying to create a virtual disk using the share in Hyper-V management?
Thanks in advance!
