So far I was trying to boot the HyperV VM from SMB share, it was failing with error "Remote SMB does not support resiliency". Finally I found that it only works with SMB2_02 protocol by adding below in smb.conf,

max protocol = SMB2_02

So now I want to create an SMB share for this particular Hyper-V server with SMB2_02 and I don't want to affect other SMB configuration for other shares.

Will it be possible and how?

    Another option may be to add an IP alias and tie two separate samba instances to separate IPs.

    I don't have a way to test it, I'm just putting a possibility out there -- you'd (try to) configure each samba instance to listen only on its separate IP address; with separate config files, you could set the "max protocol" separately (in their Global sections)

Not according to the documentation. max protocol is an alias for server max protocol, and that is defined as:

server max protocol (G)

... where the (G) means:

The letter G in parentheses indicates that a parameter is specific to the [global] section.
