HyperV Server missing

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a HyperV Host machine which has 2 Virtual machines. They both had a snapshot which I decided to delete and then turn off and let them merge to free up a little disk space. However one machine worked but the other disappeared. I decided to have a look in SSVMM in case it still showed up in that program. It is listed there but as MISSING, the strange thing is the Virtual Server is still running, it is a full working exchange server that is in production and everything is working ok.

I was hoping that if I restart the Virtual Machines and the Host server that all may be ok, however I am a bit nervous about doing this, in case I cant start the problem Virtual Machine.

I have made an Acronis backup, but hope I dont need to use it.

Any advice will be appreciated.
