Hyper-V server snapshot location no longer exists.... how can I delete a snapshot the server thinks it has?
Posted on 2011-10-18
I have a Windows Server running Hyper-V with 3 virtual servers hosted on it. 2 of these 3 servers are live and important to the operation of my work, the 3rd is not and I am trying to move it to a development box.
No problem, of course, until I noticed that Hyper-V thinks this server has a snapshot on a location that doesn't exist. It refers to a snapshot sitting on a local drive that isn't there - and this "phantom" snapshot is preventing me from moving the server to the dev box I want it on.
My question is this - is there any way I can delete this snapshot without damaging either the Hyper-V config or the 2 live servers that are staying put so that I can move this 3rd server?
With very many thanks.
