Failed while trying to move Hyper-V storage to another drive

While attempting to do some housecleaning on a customer Hyper-V machine, I attempted to move the VM storage and got an error I have never seen before.

Storage migration for virtual machine 'adobe01' (10543A89-4066-4B08-8F9E-BF7E767B0FEB) failed with error 'Account restrictions are preventing this user from signing in. For example: blank passwords aren't allowed, sign-in times are limited, or a policy restriction has been enforced.' (0x8007052F).

Hyper-V Error
I have had some strange issues with the Hyper-V hosts in the past, and I think this is probably related. There were some crazy GPOs with access restrictions that have been removed, but something probably remains in there somewhere.

What account would be used when doing a Hyper-V storage move? Where should I check the permissions? Is there maybe a way to reset the permissions back to 'default' on this machine? It is Windows 2012 and it is domain connected. There is no AV running on the host.

Are you doing this in your test lab or in production environment. From the Active Directory users and computers > right click on user for which you need to check the permissions > select member of tab and there it would show you the Groups, this user is member of.

I'd recommend to perform the operation with domain Administrator and check if it's working or not.

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

The same server actually.

The clue is in "update the VHD link".

The permission set on the folder that the VM's configuration files sounds like they may be corrupt or incorrect. Simplest way is to compare against a known good Hyper-V system's configuration files folder.

Permissions look correct.

Create a new folder on the destination partition and initiate the move into that folder. Work?

Nope. Had to re-create the Default Domain Policy and Default Domain Controllers policy. What a mess.
