I have a VM that went off line because the CSV ran out of space.  Now I can't get the machine to come back up because VMM sees it as Unsupported Cluster Configuration.  I have tried repair from VMM but that does not work.

I have looked at the storage location and the primary drive for the VM has about 5 additional avhd files.   If I rebuild the VM and use the primary file the machine does not come up in the state that it was most currently -- I assume the avhd files hold all the changes that have been made since the server was first deployed.

My question is, seeing as I have the VM files and all the VHD and AVHD files, how do I go about getting this machine backup and running?  I have tried importing but get an error when attempting to do that.

Thank you.
