SCVMM Server Status Migration Failed
Posted on 2010-08-12
My System Center Virtual Machine Manager server status is stuck on "Migration Failed" in Virtual Machine Manager. When attempting to migrate the storage to another cluster shared volume the process failed and I am unable to repair or undo the failed job. Prior to this the VM that runs VMM was highly available and I was able to live migrate it successfully, now the VM boots and runs VMM but I am unable to move it from host to host, the status is stuck on "Migration failed" and I am unable to view/change any of the properties.
The error code given is Error (2903), " VMM could not locate the specified file [path and name of .avhd] on the host server. This file might be required as part of another object. (The system cannot find the file specified (0x80070002))." Needless to say, the avhd file does not exist.
I attempted to export/import the VM but the imported VM would not allow me to connect to VMM and was stuck in the same Migration Failed state. Is there a way to salvage my current SCVMM server? Otherwise is there a way to bring up another SCVMM server and pull in the database without disrupting the current environment?
This is a 2008 R2 standard server running SCVMM 2008 R2.
