Hyper-V VMs cannot find the path after storage migration
I am trying to migrate VM from a standalone Server to a new Server They seem to give me same error:. It was slower and the servers had to be offline but it worked. Oh well. I solved above issue by shutdown all VMs and quick migrate to new server, then everything working perfect. At this point while am trying to do Live Migration above issue was happened. That is one of the strange things. That is why I tried manually specifying the destination location and that is when I get the source server error. Since I posted this I also found on the destination server this event:. The virtual machine 'VM' is not compatible with physical computer 'Dest Server'. I was able to export and import the VM fine with a manual copy and then start VM on destination server. I would just rather not do it that way as a three step process rather than one and also the additional storage needs. This can also be an issue with update level on both servers. Different update levels can cause this issue, check and verify this. You can also look at the following links, might be helpful:. Thanks I made sure they are on - There is nothing in those links I haven't already tried. To continue this discussion, please ask a new question. Get answers from your peers along with millions of IT pros who visit Spiceworks. They seem to give me same error: Virtual machine migration operation failed at migration destination. Virtual machine migration operation for 'VM' failed at migration destination 'New Server'. Virtual machine migration operation for 'VM' failed at migration source 'Old Server'. The difference is if I specify location of files on destination server or I allow it to choose automatically. I am trying to migrate with VM offline. I just want to move from one server to the other. I would prefer not to fall back to export. I have rebooted both source and destination server. I have tried being logged into source or destination server.
Your definitive guide to Troubleshoot Hyper-V Live Migration
The title of this article describes the symptoms fairly well. However, I can show you how to eliminate the problem. The root problem also affects local and Cluster Shared Volume locations, although the default permissions generally prevent blocking problems from manifesting. I have experienced the problem on both R2 and I discovered the problem when one of my nodes went down for maintenance and all of its virtual machines crashed. You will also have several of the more generic FailoverClustering IDs, and and Hyper-V-High-Availability IDs and as the cluster service desperately tries to sort out the problem. The cluster still knows about it though. It adjusts the NTFS permissions for the host. The permission level that I set, and that I counsel everyone to set, is Full Control. We click Advanced as the first investigative step and see:. The Access still only tells us Specialbut we can see that inheritance did not cause this. Whatever changes the permissions is making the changes directly on this folder. Double-clicking the entry and then clicking the Show advanced permissions link at the right shows us the new permission set:. After the very next Live Migration, these permissions were back! It does occur on those as well. However, the default permissions on CSVs have other entries that ensure that this particular issue does not prevent virtual machines from functioning. I do know how to prevent the problem from adversely affecting your virtual machines. It will take care of any missing registrations. When that happens, NTFS grants the least restrictive set of permissions. If it found a Deny anywhere, that would override any conflicting Allow. However, there are no Deny settings, so that single Allow wins. However, I do recommend that you add the same group with Full Control permissions to the share. As I mentioned before, I recommend that you adopt the group membership tactic whether you need it or not. Download a day trial and get started in under 15 minutes.

Actually when we 1st create windows cluster using that account, example cluster admin, windows will do afew things. It creates the cno. Then the cno will have the cluster admin rights. The windows cluster under the security will also have cluster admin rights. The ou that host the hyper v will also have the cluster admin rights. The cluster share volume will also have the cluster admin rights. However if you decide one day saying nope i don want to use cluster admin to manage any more and use other user to manage, we will have to reverse engineer the process as above, test then remove the cluster admin permissions.
