When attempting to specify the storage location in the Select Path dialog of the System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) Create Virtual Machine Wizard, you may receive an error similar to the following:
ETL logging will reveal a similar message:
This error may occur if you select a local hard drive location on a cluster node rather than clustered storage (e.g. you specify a local, non-clustered path such as E:\ or E:\VMS). Because this would result in creating a non-highly available (non-HA) virtual machine, this action is blocked on clustered hosts.
To resolve this error, click OK to dismiss the dialog and specify a clustered storage location such as a CSV or SAN volume.
