Moving a Live VM from one 2012 R2 Hyper-V server to another 2012 R2 Hyper-V server fails

I have two 2012 R2 Hyper-V servers - serverA and serverB. When I try to do a live move of a VM from A to B, it fails with the following error:

"The virtual machine cannot be moved to the destination computer. The hardware on the destination computer is not compatible with the hardware requirments of this virtual machine.

Virtual machine migration operation failed at migration destination.

The virtual machine is using processor-specific features not supported on physical computer 'serverB'."

Through my own Googling I found that both Hyper-V servers need to have their Virtual Switch named the same, which I've done.  Still, no luck.

Anyone else see this issue?

Thanks!

Do you have the setting "Migrate to a computer with a different processor version" enabled?

You can check this here:
- Hyper-V Manager -- > click on the VM --> Action Pane --> Settings
- Navigation Pane -->  Processor + next --> Processor --> Compatibility
- Check if  "Migrate to a physical computer with a different processor version" is enabled.
