DC VM on Hyper V server 2008 R2 missing
Posted on 2013-05-30
So here is the situation.
Server 2008 R2 Hyper V Host with three server 2008 std vm machines. A DC, an Exchange Server and a Pastel Server.
The Hyper V Host Server has a C Drive on which the Hypr V Host is installed, an E Drive on which the DC vm is installed, an F Drive on which the Exchange vm is installed and the Pastel server is on G:
The guys looking after the server were demoting the secondary dc and after doing a lot of things they lost the vm out of the Hyper V Manager.
So in the Hyper V Manager I can only see the Exchange vm and the Pastel vm.
If I browse the E Drive I can see the DC's vhd file but the Virtual machines folder is empty.
They do have a backup of the entire e: Drive from last night.
Can I restore the entire E drive from last nights backup, Import the vm in the hyper v manager and start it up or is there another way to go about it?
