Hyper-V 2012 R2 Re-attach existing VM
Posted on 2014-10-28
I have a Hyper-V Server, with a local SATA drive for the Hyper-V OS etc., and all the VMs on a iSCSI Drive.
The local SATA drive failed, and I was unable to restore the backup. So I have performed a new installation of Hyper-V onto a new SATA drive. I have attached the iSCSI disk and can see all the files.
My problem is, in Hyper-V Manager I can see the host, but obviously no VM's. But I can find no obvious way to attach the VMs to this host. In VMWare I simply browse to the VM files, right click, and select Add to Inventory.
So how do it do this. There are a lot of VM's, so I do not relish recreating them all.
