vCloud Director and clustered Guest OS

Just a quick post to try to save some effort here…

After a few days of investigation and testing (and speaking to a VMWare consultant) it’s been determined that the current version of vCloud Director does NOT support clustering a guest OS. vCD does not have the ability to create shared disk resources and even if you try to bypass it by going directly to the vCenter instance and edit the hardware yourself (unsupported by VMWare, btw), all the options for creating a shared SCSI controller/disk are grayed out. vCD overrides the ability to do any of this.

Bummer, but not completely unexpected.
