2012R2 Hyper-V Server on a HP Proliant 370 G6 - VMs diasappearing
Posted on 2014-02-13
Hello, I have issues with VM's simply disappearing after creating them in Hyper-V manager.
Hardware: HP Proliant 370 G6 with 3 x 2TB in RAID 5 with P410 drive controller.
RAID5 array contains Volume C: 90GB for Hyper-V server OS, Volume V: 1.5TB For VMs
Software: Windows 2012R2 Hyper-V Server fully patched.
Issues (repeated): I connect to the Hyper-V server with with ServerManager from a Win8 machine and open the Hyper-V Manager App successfully. I then create two new VMs (with Gen 1 and Gen2) but do not install the OS. The setup continues but keeps spinning at "Create Virtual Disk". The VM's show up initially in the summary but later disappear.
I keep thinking that perhaps the HP G6 Server cannot handle more than 2TB as an array. If so, would the max size of all disks combined have to be less than 2TB in
A. the array or
B. the Controller?
But it could also be something in Hyper-V.
Thank you helping me clarify the issue.
