Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
The vioscsi.sys file is now compatible with Microsoft Cluster Services, which enables the Windows virtio-scsi driver to support Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC) using shared storage. As a result, vioscsi.sys can pass all tests in the "Validate a Configuration" process.

Description Pablo Iranzo Gómez 2015-02-23 08:31:13 UTC
Description of problem:

Spin off from BZ https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1111784#c8

"That said, failover clustering on Windows requires the driver to show up as a SAS, iSCSI or FC driver.  Currently, vioscsi.sys doesn't do that.  So it's possible that Microsoft failover cluster will not work on virtio-scsi even if sg_persist working on Linux."

This is required for Microsoft Failover clusters to be able to use SCSI reservations.

Comment 2 Pablo Iranzo Gómez 2015-02-23 08:34:08 UTC
As you were providing comments on this, can you check what else may I have missed on this bz?


Comment 4 Yaniv Lavi 2015-02-24 15:29:27 UTC
Moving to 3.6.0, 3.5.0 is already out.

Comment 5 Yaniv Lavi 2015-03-15 08:22:52 UTC
Can you please provide a update on this one?
It's blocking a customer escalated ticket.

Comment 7 Yaniv Lavi 2015-03-16 08:04:06 UTC
This is blocking us from allowing SCSI reservation for windows, can you give a update on driver development?

Comment 28 Sandro Bonazzola 2016-09-16 14:23:52 UTC
Dropping Lev from assignee. Please open a WGT build request once the RFE is done on Virt side.

Comment 29 Michal Skrivanek 2016-09-19 10:59:30 UTC
there is nothing else to do in oVirt other than ship newer virtio-scsi driver and documentation

Comment 64 Jiri Belka 2017-01-02 09:28:03 UTC
ok, 4.0-7 WGT

see #54 as this is just respin of the WGT. (MS clustering compatibility is handled in BZ1111784).

Comment 67 Jiri Belka 2017-01-02 14:23:08 UTC
putting back, this is for 4.1, I tried 4.0-7

Comment 71 Jiri Belka 2017-01-06 12:43:52 UTC
ok, wgt 4.1.3

although MCFC validation fails because of an issue how storage is handled on oVirt host, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1111784#c32
