Deploying a highly available library server on a file server cluster

Following the deployment of a VMM management server in a cluster and knowing that VMM 2012, when installed in a high availability mode, does not automatically create the VMM library, we now need to deploy the VMM library. Since we are talking about a high available deployment, the VMM library will have to be HA as well.

In this recipe, we will go through a deployment of a file server cluster to be used as the VMM library. You you can use an existing file server cluster as the library as long as it meets the system requirements for SC 2012 SP1.

VMM 2012 SP1 includes support for designating network file shares on Windows 2012 servers as the storage location for the VMM library.
