  1. Hyper-V Replica using IP Address instead of NETBIOS/FQDN

    Is there any chance to have Hyper-V Replica to work over IP address instead of NETBIOS/FQDN?
    Without messing with DNS / hosts file (%windir%\system32\drivers\etc).
    Scenario: Sending replica traffic over dedicated network.
    Network Constraint (control which networks HR runs upon, based on network interface).
    Thanks!

    • Change the disk size while VM is in replica whithout lose replica

      Expample:
      Having a VM with a replica. Now I will change the size of a harddisk at the primary site (most of the time to increase the volume size).
      After I do that the replica is broken and I must completly restart the replica with lost of all previous replicas.

      Please find a way to do this online without break the replica!

      • Hyper-V live migrate to replica

        I really do appreciate the live migration of VMs, so that I can seamlessly maintain hosts. I also cherish the async replication between hosts for disaster recovery. What I do miss is the option to live migrate, using the already replicated storage, to the target host. This would save enormous amount of resources.

        • Ability to replicate shared vhdxs.

          Well done for implementing shared vhdxs, and making guest clustering a possibility. But how are we supposed to make use of replication when you are unable to replicate a shared vhdx? We would like to be able to maintain a backup solution that we can failover to if need be.

          Please can you implement this feature so that we can contine to rely on the benefits of replication.

          Thanks

          • Syncronize VM configuration changes when Hyper-V Replica is Enabled

            Add an option to syncronize (or not) configuration changes (CPU, Memory, Disk, NIC, etc) from primary VM to replica VM, when Hyper-V Replica is enabled.
