Hello,

We're planning to host 30 plus large windowsdatabaseservers on SAN-storage.
The servers will be Hyper-V 2012 guests

As far as websearching led me, the current setup would be
Hyper-V 2012Host
*VM Guest 1 (vhdx) on Volume Guid A
*VM Guest 2 (vhdx) on Volume Guid B
...
*VM Guest 27 (vhdx) on Volume Guid AA

Current concerns:
VHDX would be bigger than 2 TB (checkdisk?)
Is there a maximum of volume guids per server?
Any experience in managing VM's on volume guids


Can you recommend a forum to discuss this?
