Hello,

Is it possible to use Fibre Channel storage with Openstack on Hyper-v ? The "Openstack Configuration Regerence" is not very clear:

"Fibre Channel support in Compute Fibre Channel support in OpenStack Compute is remote block storage attached to compute nodes for VMs. In the Grizzly release, Fibre Channel supported only the KVM hypervisor."

Any help is very much appreciated.

@bishoy, This is not correct.

1) We don't currently support FC in Nova on Hyper-V for the time being, see: http://ask.cloudbase.it/question/284/...

2) We support live migration with block storage on Hyper-V (iSCSI, SMB3)
