Restoring Hyper-V backup
Posted on 2014-01-22
I have a machine running on Windows 2012 Hyper-V Server. I had stopped the VM and exported it. The export created 3 directories, snapshot (empty), virtual hard disks and virtual machines. There is a issue with its windows system directory and I want to restore it to the last exported copy.
1) How do I restored it back to the original 2012 Hyper-V Server? (I m thinking that I only need the virtual disk.)
2A) Is the 2012 virtual disk compatible with 2008 R2 Server hyper-v?
2B) Is it possible to import the VDD into a new VM running on a different server - Windows 2008 R2 server with Hyper-V instead of Windows 2012 Hyper-V Server?
