Moving hyper v vm storage
Posted on 2014-03-29
I have a vm that needs its virtual hard disks moved to a new partition. I took a snapshot several weeks ago, after first creating the vm ,and I can see in the vm settings that the "myvmD" partition of the vm is using a .avhd file
I started the migration this morning. I first deleted the snapshot in hyper v manager. Then shut it down the vm. I am now copying the VHd files to the new partition.
Do I still need the avhd files, or did the data merge when I deleted the snapshot?
To summarize, source files on the host server are:
And I am moving them to the C:\ partition on the host server.
After moving the data, I will point the hard drive in the vm settings to the moved VHd or avhd file.
