We are trying to upgrade a Windows 2016 Hyper-V cluster from Mitaka to Newton. After installing compute agent on the Hyper-V server (HyperVNovaComputeNewton1401.msi), keeping the same configuration files, the service does not start. After replacing computedriver=hyperv.nova.cluster.driver.HyperVClusterDriver with computedriver=hyperv.HyperVDriver, the service starts and the Hyper-V host register correctly. But it works not in cluster mode. We tryed some variant for computedriver (as computedriver=hyperv.HyperVClusterDriver), but we cannot find any.

Is there a way with Newton to use Hyper-V failover cluster ?

Unfortunately, some bits regarding how the drivers are loaded changed in Newton, and now the valid drivers are:

# clustered driver

# regular driver

Let us know if you have any further questions!

Best regards,
