How do I move 2008 R2 Cluster from VMM 2008 R2 over to Vmm 2012 R2?
Posted on 2014-11-22
We were formerly using 2008 R2 SCVMM and now must use 2012 R2 SCVMM. Due to circumstances, the 2008R2 VMM is not longer accessible due to corrupt sid on SQL database as the result of active directory issues. The 2008 VMM database was using a SQL 2005 express edition (32bit). Managing this database has proven difficult. At this time we have been unable to access the 2005 database.
Our end goal is to begin managing (3) Hyper V Host in a cluster on our new 2012 VMM (r2). However, when we try to add the cluster as a resource on the 2012 VMM Console, the host severs of the cluster remain in a "pending" status.
Any advise on how to cause the 2008 VMM to "release" the associate to the old VMM console (if that is the problem) so that they can be managed in the new 2012 VMM console?
