Placing Virtual Machines into a Hyper-V Cluster

This screencast discusses the do’s and don’ts of adding virtual machines to a Hyper-V cluster.  Just because you create a virtual machine on a host machine that is also part of a Hyper-V cluster does not mean that the virtual machine will be highly available.  You need to install the virtual machine into the cluster using the failover cluster manager after the VM has been installed on the machine via the Hyper-V manager.  Check out this discussion.  Warning, my audio on this recording is louder than my first three sessions, so be sure to turn down your speakers.
