    Have anyone tried to port SVHDXFLT filter from WS2016 to 14393, similar to Dedup filter?
    If I want to share one VHDX between two Hyper-V VMs, I need this filter (and use fltmc attach svhdxflt d:) to put files on local drive.
    Client OS doesn't have a filter and I'd love to hear if anyone knows how to port it from Windows Server 2016 (same applies to 8.1 and 2012R2 where it first appeared)

    The driver is part of FailoverCluster-FullServer package, which can be installed on client os, but ProductPolicy might prevent it from working

    Thanks, but how can I get it from server 2016?
    There is no CAB file, only CAT and MUM with FailoverCluster-Fullserver.

    I just extract/prepare pakages as-is, don't know how to mod or patch the files :)

    Can you guide how to do that? How do you create a CAB?
    I'd love to get WDS (Deployment Services) and Containers (normal, not Hyper-V Containers) role as a CAB.

    Thanks for the tool. How would I find which files I need to pack?
    Is there any article here how any role is packed?
