Can't change the ConfigStoreRootPath value of a Hyper-V cluster in Windows Server
Original KB number: 4488568
When configuring the cluster resources of a Hyper-V cluster in Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019, assume that you have already set a value of the
ConfigStoreRootPath attribute by using the following cmdlet:
Get-ClusterResource -Cluster "Virtual Machine Cluster WMI" | Set-ClusterParameter -Name ConfigStoreRootPath -Value <Value>
When trying to change the
ConfigStoreRootPath value by using the cmdlet, you receive this error message:
The request is not supported
The value depends on the location of the shared storage volume or its subfolders. You can verify the location by using the following cmdlet:
Get-ClusterResource -Cluster "Virtual Machine Cluster WMI" | Get-ClusterParameter ConfigStoreRootPath
That's by design. No value is set for the
ConfigStoreRootPath attribute in the default configuration of a cluster resource. If a value is set, this value will be propagated to several components across the platform. It can't be changed afterwards.
Changing the value of the
ConfigStoreRootPath attribute in the cluster registry isn't supported either.
