I know KVM runs fine from it, but Windows integration is non-existing. AFAIK the best you could do is export the volume via Samba and try it that way. 
You'll probably need "strict allocate = yes" in the samba conf.

Personally, seeing how you're already lost to Microsoft, you should try their distributed filesystem (dfs?) which is probably much more tested with Hyper-V.
