Hyper-V 2012 manual live merging?
Posted on 2014-09-16
I have a Hyper-V 2012 server and a guest with a giant AVHDX (300GB). I deleted the snapshots when I discovered them and it started to do a live merge. However, at the time I didn't think I had the disk space to complete it so I cancelled the merge. Now that I've cleared up space, it looks like the only way to merge the diffs is to turn off the guest and wait. This guest can't take the kind of downtime a 300GB merge would require and when I turn the guest back on, it seems to cancel the merge. Is there a way to manually kick off a live merge again?
Thank you in advanced.
