Hi, I have an environment with two 2008 R2 hosts and one 2012 R2 host.
The 2008 R2 physical host servers need to be replaced,
Can I temporarily move their guests to the Hyper-V 2012 R2?
I have two 2012 R2 hyper-v guests already running on the 2012 R2 host.
They are by no means taxing the server so as far as disk, memory and CPU cores goes I have plenty of capacity.
It is just a matter of, "If I copy over the .vhd, will Hyper-V allow me to create and spin up that guest?"
The long term will be to setup new hosts for these guests but this would be a welcome bit of breathing room until the end solution is in place.

thanks,

The answer to this is: Yes, if I copy over the .vhd, Hyper-V does allow me to create and spin up that guest.
