Creating Hyper-V clusters
This recipe will guide you to create a Hyper-V cluster using VMM. Using the steps provided here, you will be able to select Hyper-V servers and join them to a cluster, configuring networking and storage resources in the process.
Before you start creating a Hyper-V cluster, there are some requirements that you need to look at. These are discussed in the next sections.

Make sure that the following prerequisites are met before creating a cluster:
- You need at least two standalone Hyper-V servers, and they need to be under VMM management already (see the Adding and managing Hyper-V hosts and host clusters recipe in Chapter 5, Configuring Fabric Resources in VMM).
