Hyper-V manual merge order
Posted on 2014-04-23
I have a hyper V machine with 5 snapshots.
Because I have run out of space on my drive, I have to do a manual merge on a different machine. The machine is actually a production box and I cannot bring it offline for the amount of time that it will take to do the merge. My question is the following.
Lets set I have 5 snapshots in this order
Can I merge CDRIVE4.avhdx to CDRIVE3.avhdx and continue the merge until I am left only with CDRIVE.VHD and CDRIVE5.avhdx.
and then merge CDRIVE5.avhdx to CDRIVE.VHD?
The reason for this is to minimize the downtime on the box
I am not sure if my question is unclear, if you need further clarification, please let me know
