Hi all, I am looking for some advice on the best way to manage a potential snapshot problem.
Last weekend I installed some MS updates onto a Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V server VM, this server had a snapshot and once the updates installed the server booted. The snapshot merged, but the server would not boot again stating it could not find the .AVHD drive. The drive it was looking for was the snapshot ID, this has totally been blown away following the potential merge. Recovery steps are currently underway.
Checking my other installations I noticed the following, I have .AVHD files associated to a server running drives that actually has no snapshots listed. This server has been rebooted to see if a merge happened but when it came up again (thankfully) the .AVHD files are still being used (see below).
Does anyone know the best (safe way) to merge these files?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions and advise :-)
