The Scale-out File System service provides a distributed multi-access service for SMB shares on Windows 2012r2 and 2016. This allows access to network file shares as a service, so access can migrate from node to node, and in some cases allow simultaneous access to single CSV files inside SMB shares.
In the Failover Cluster Manager GUI, select Roles > Configure Role
Select File Server then click next
Select Scale-out File Server and then next.
Select your SMB share node name. This will be used in your SMB file paths. For example: the above Client Access Point would be use in a path as such:
And click Finish to complete.
When complete, there will be a new folder on every node in the storage cluster: C:\ClusterStorage\Volume1
There will be a new folder created for each Virtual Disk created. These folders do not contain data directly but are pointers to the storage spaces storage on the share disks. Each node will contain this folder which is simply a link to the real storage system.
