Moving virtual machines/VHDX to new drive letter when Hyper-V replica involved
Posted on 2013-12-22
I have a Hyper-V server that is the recipient of several virtual machines that are being replicated using Hyper-V replica.
I need to move them to a different storage array, which will be a different drive letter.
Any suggestions? I could stop replication, move ALL of the files to the new array, and swap out drive letters. But that would take replication offline for many hours (2.5TB). I'd prefer to just move them one at a time so I can stop replication on one machine at a time, move it, and bring it back online.
