Hi All

I have a VM in 3 node Windows 2008 R2 Hyper V cluster that will not fail over

We do not run VMM at the moment so i am doing this from within failover Cluster Manager

I have attached the log from the source host and the Destination host,

Can anyone see why this would be failing

this should be the reason:
Microsoft Synthetic Ethernet Port (Instance ID {EA088B00-E309-4504-90B0-12129B51373C}): Failed to restore with Error 'The system cannot find the path specified.'
The configuration of the NIC's are not identical over the cluster-nodes.

I have tried moving a different VM from the same source Host to the same destination host and it worked fine, seems to be specific to a single VM

the vm-settings and the vm-storage are at the shared cluster-volume?
the Vm without problems using the same NIC's?

Sorry for the delay, yes we are using a CSV, also i have other VM's that are able to migrate without issue to the same servers, our network setup is quite simple, we only have one External Network in which all of the VM's are connected

seems the VM-Settings are corrupt.
Try to create a new VM and attach the vHDD (or a copy)
