hyper v cluster storage

hi guyss,

i stucked in very bad situation, the vm has been restarted and the virtual storage attached in the machine was discinnected.

i tried mount that vhdx file but i faced error.. atlast i shutdown vm and tried to turn it on it shows error (attached)

i understand that the issue is the vitual storage file is mounted somewhere so i cant access it to start my vm..

could anyone tell me how to kill that process to access this vm file

Maybe your VHD file is just locked? and not mounted?
Have you tried to restart the server which could undo a lock or reattach storage safely?

Is there a backup running locking the file perhaps?

So you have a file server, and you cannot attach one of its VHD files correct?
If so do any other VMs use this file?
Where is the storage located physically?

What is the error I cannot see attachment.

Are there any VMs running succesfully at the minute?

Any critical, warning or errors in application or system log on hyperv host?

What does HyperV BPA say when ran on host?

whike adding cluster storage andbclick on inspect

the process cannot acess the file because it is being used by another process

it is 100 percent that particulat vhdxfile issue i guess

Can you post the results of a BPA but more importantly critical, warnings and errors from event log that are relevant?

This has been fixed,

I know this is not the solution for this but for make it faster i done this.

I have just copy and paste the same file to different location, then i attached that new vhdx file in hyper-v settings. it got fixed.

the file is just locked. unlocker would provably do the trick. hooing for the points anyway.

nice workaround  m
