I am looking to move our DFS-R file servers to SoFS to accommodate our User Profile Disks in Windows Server 2012 R2 remote desktop services.
DFS-R does not give us any fail over capability as it stands, so if we lose the primary file server, user's profiles will become dismounted.
I intend to create two nodes as VMs in VMware, and need a solution for the shared storage. Our VMware cluster has datastores on our SAN, so I am wondering if I can just use shared VMDKs at VMware level for this kind of scenario? If this is possible, can anyone point me in the direction of a good set of instructions on how to configure shared storage in this way?
Are there any dos/don'ts for shared storage in this scenario?
Has anyone created a SoFS setup on VMware before and have any advice that may be of use?
