Very odd thing started happening on a Hyper-V VM I have running on a Server 2016 host. Whenever I try to shutdown the VM from Hyper-V Manager on the host I get a message saying "These selected virtual machine(s) cannot shutdown while they are locked, unless the shutdown is forced."
I've never seen this message before when shutting down a VM, anyone know what I need to change to stop this from happening? The VM is a server 2016 installation too.
Do you force the shutdown by command line?
THE vm has a snapshot?
From the command prompt turn off the vm with the following command and tell me if it gives you an error:
stop-vm followed by the server name
