Cloning HyperV Guest
Posted on 2014-03-05
I'd like to know if anyone has had any success in copying a VM in hyperV and actually getting it to work. I'm at a loss with what else I can do to make this clone work. We have a server, that has a lot of touchy configurations on it, and to save time, I'm trying to make a copy of it, so we can tweak whats needed, and make it a mirror of the original. Here's the issue, i was able to successfully copy/export it out, and re import it with a new GUID. However, more specifically, I'm stuck on the following three things, machine name, domain connectivity, and network connectivity. I cannot get the server to connect and register the domain network, therefore, I cannot get it to rename and join back to the domain under the new name. I've looked around on a few technet articles, but cant find anything directly related to it. Should I just cut my losses and spin up a new server, or is this salvageable?
Any help would be great, thanks everyone!
