I am trying to get a clear answer on Failover clustering in WIndows Server 2016. In Windows 2012 setting up a Scale Out File Server share was to be used for SQL or Hyper-V. Using the General Use File server was for file shares. I would like to know if this guidance is still true for WIndows 2016? ON this blog https://docs.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/rds-storage-spaces-di... Microsoft is recommending a SOFS for user profile disks. Doesn't that go agains the guidance Microsoft recommends?
In the end I want to build a HA file share to store citrix user profiles in Azure. I am not sure what to use to accomplish it in Azure, a SOFS or a gerneral use file share?
That is exactly what I am trying to do. The SOFS was easy to setup, but not ideal for Citrix Profiles as it stores them in indivdual files (unlike RDS, which is VHD and would work).
I tried setting up a general file server in the failover cluster, but I can only get it to reply when it is on one of the two nodes. It must have something to do with the load balancer, but I have not worked it out yet.
