Hyper-V VM going into a "saved" state
Posted on 2013-02-05
We have a virtual host running Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V.
There are 7 VM's running in this instance of Hyper-V.
We are running into a problem where one of these VM's, which is running Windows XP Professional, is going into a "saved" state multiple times a week, causing the machine to go down and become unavailable.
Anyone have any ideas as to why this could be happening? The host machine and the virtual machine are not out of disk space. This server has 16GB of RAM and is currently using 14GB.
I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but the Windows Server Backup on the host machine is has been failing for quite a while. I am currently trying to figure out why this is happening as well.
Any input would be appreciated.
