Hyper-V

Hyper-V is a native hypervisor; it can create virtual machines on x86-64 systems and supersedes Windows Virtual PC as the hardware virtualization component of the client editions of Windows NT. A server computer running Hyper-V can be configured to expose individual virtual machines to one or more networks. Hyper-V Server supports remote access via Remote Desktop Connection. Administration and configuration of the host OS and the guest virtual machines is generally done over the network.

I am running a Server 2012 Hyper-V cluster on identical hardware that ran well for years. Recently, one of the OS'es became corrupt and the server had to be rebuilt. We named the two server in the cluster VM1 and VM2 and they use a FC SAN as CSV. I had to rebuild VM2. Now the cluster IP address is showing as offline- the rebuild was in-place, and I kept the same IP addresses and configurations so the servers are back to being identical. The error code I get in Failover Cluster Manager is "0x80071397 - The operation failed because either the specified cluster node is not the owner of the resource, or the node is not a possible owner of the resource."

The IP address properties sheet shows both VM1 and VM2 checked. I also used the "Get-ClusterOwnerNode" cmdlet to verify the same thing. Any ideas?

I am Running Exchange Server 2016 in a Hyper-V environment.  KB4340731 failed installation for CU9.  After correcting other issues, mail flow is working, but I am not able to access management either through Administrative Center or through EMS.  The Microsoft Exchange Service Host service is constantly restarting.

My primary AD server (and DNS) is a physical machine (Server 2008R2), while my secondary AD server (and secondary DNS) is a hyper-v virtual machine.
My primary server I back up each day, but the secondary vm is backed up as a hyper-v image from 3 months ago.
I lost the virtual secondary server (theft of the host server), and would like to restore (import) the old hyper-v image on the new host server.

If I import the old hyper-v image of the secondary server onto the new host hyper-v server, will it run okay? Or will the new host hardware be a problem for the virtual AD server? I have already imported another non Active Directory vm image to the new host hardware, so I know the hardware is compatible, just I am unsure about AD.
Also, I assume the secondary server, once connected will automatically synchronise with the primary server?

My Hyper V VM cannot get out to the internet. I setup a Hyper V lab with multiple server 2012\16 machines. I originally set them up on the private switch because I didnt think I would need the internet. I decided I needed it so I switch it to the external switch and they can still see each other but just not get out to the internet.

One of my VM's which I setup with the external switch when I installed it, still gets out to the internet. Just the ones im changing from a private switch to external wont work. Is there something I am missing?

I have a Server 2012 R2 Guest Machine, A Domain Controller that is a guest as well. It is a production environment and has been running well since 2012. Recently we received a new public IP address and had to make some adjustments to the server:

New SSL cert applied after the change.
Made sure no IPv6 is running. with the new router/switch.

Everything is working. httsp://access.somedumbdomain.com/rdweb works, all offices can connect. 5 off site locations can connect.

A vendor needs to update his software for the client, we login and to manage rdweb services though the server manager and we discover the A remote desktop services deployment does not exist in the server pool.

I have googled every error in the error logs, tried ever thing in for the words A remote desktop services deployment does not exist in the server pool.

Help!

I have a Microsoft Failover Cluster in which I host clustered shared volumes that reside on virtual machines. These virtual machines are hosted by Hyper V.
My specific problem is that according to Fail-Over-Cluster-Manager I have less disk space than physically present in the CSV. (Thus, according to Windows there are 400 GB, the Failover Cluster Manager tells me on the CSVFS volume are still 3 of 1000GB free).
What's wrong here..?

I have a Server 2016 Hyper-V base server with 6 Server 2016 Hyper-V virtual machines that I need to backup.

What is the best Veritas Backup Exec product and licenses to purchase for performing this kind of backup?

Will purchasing Backup Exec from the URL below allow me to do a complete backup of this server or will I need to purchase additional licenses or options?

Hello,

any idea if I can use Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows - Server license, to backup Hyper-V and 2 VM, installed on Hyper-V?
I am asking this because I want application aware backup in VM to be done.

Or is that too much for him, and I should deploy 3 agents, 1 in each VM and host? Buying full Veeam B&R server, for this is not an option :)

Regards,
Ivan.

I have a file server cluster that has been working fine for about a month. The cluster is 2 virtual machines on hyper-v (2016) that have VHD sets attached to them on the hosts. These are imported into cluster manager and I have had no issues with them.

2 days ago, I migrated these new host servers which are in their own cluster configured using MS VMM.

On the original hosts they was a very simple configuration, there were 4 1GB NIC's 2 in a team for the host and 2 in the team for the clients. There was also 2x 10GB adapters in a team which the host used along with a virtual switch connected to this team that the cluster used.

When moving to the new hardware that is configured by VMM, I have tried to segregate networks more. The hosts still have their team on the 2x 1GB. but now the clients 1GB team is separated into the cluster network and client access network.

Since this move, clients have been complaining that connections are dropping and certain apps are crashing out. If I move the app to another server not under the VMM configuration then it works without issue.

What could be causing this? On all our physical network adapters we have VMQ disabled as it caused nothing but lag. I noticed VMQ were enabled on all the virtual adapters created, so I disabled this but that didn't affect the performance.

Maybe I should enable VMQ on physical + virtual? I am not sure I don't want to cause more issues while everything is running.

Hi,
I have a Windows 16 server 192.168.0.5 ppdc that hosts Hyper-v.
I have only one vm and it is my DC 192.168.0.7 ppdcb
I see nothing but the mouse on my physical monitor that is connected to.
MSTSC to ppdc doesn't work.
Manage remotely to it doesn't work.
Hyper-v manager from ppdcb to connect to ppdc doesn't work.
\\ppdc gives me Network Error Windows cannot acces. Check the spelling of the name otherwise there might be a problem with your network.....
I tried \\192.168.05 same thing
How come my VM is working fine but my Host is unaccessible
Affraid of pressing the power button after doing a shotdown on my vm ppdcb
What would be the cause.
Is a lack of HD space on ppdc be the source of that?
What are my options?

I have a Server 2016 Active Directory domain controller installed within a Server 2016 Hyper-V virtual machine that runs the Azure AD/Office 365 sync utility.

There is a constant issue where this Azure AD/Office 365 sync utility "Microsoft Online Reporting MonitoringAgent.Startup" utility consumes all of the CPU resources on this virtual server (see the screenshot).

I understand that this might be related to a .NET bug that Microsoft hasn't fixed yet.

All updates are installed on this Server 2016 server, its base server, and all other Hyper-V virtual servers.

The Hyper-V base server and all virtual machines are running on Solid State drives. The base server and all of the other virtual servers are operating just fine and don't have this issue with CPU utilization.

Currently, there are 4 virtual CPUs assigned to this virtual server (out of a total of 32 physical CPUs). It doesn't matter how many virtual CPUs I assign to this virtual server, this issue continues to occur when I have assigned 8, 12, or 16 virtual CPUs.

What can be done to fix this issue?

I have a lab VM environment on my PC. It does not have internet access, just access to the other VM's in the lab. I need to download some software then transfer the install files to the VM. What is the best way to do this? Its a 2012 server Hyper V environment.

Or is there a way I can get the VM's to connect to my PC wireless to get to the internet? I did it at work with Hyper V but I had to use a network port for each VM.

I have a new HyperV 2016 host that I have installed a guest on. Guest has been working for a coupe of weeks. This morning, the host crashed and then could not reboot. Received the following error:

'Host' has encountered a fatal error.  The guest operating system reported that it failed with the following error codes: ErrorCode0: 0xEF, ErrorCode1: 0xFFFFD188A76E9280, ErrorCode2: 0x0, ErrorCode3: 0x0, ErrorCode4: 0x0.  If the problem persists, contact Product Support for the guest operating system.  (Virtual machine ID 0D34259E-2CCF-4BBA-8585-74FAB2D381C3

ANy ideas here? The new server is a DC and is causing issues being down. If I can't get a quick solution will need to move onto backup DC.

I need to install Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM) to back up a Server 2016 Hyper-V base server and the 10 Server 2016 virtual servers that are running on this base server.

I already have a Server 2016 virtual server setup with System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2016. Is it best to install DPM on the base server, on the same server running SCCM 2016, or on its own Server 2016 virtual server?

I am adding a branch location to my main office. I have a domain server in the HQ and now adding a domain server in the branch office and will set up a site-to-site AD replication.
I will need a VPN connection to do the replication; I do not want to replace my routers to a VPN router, rather would install the server VPN role and make a VPN connection between both host servers.

The domain server is a hyper-v server

Is this something you would recommend?

Hi,

Wondering if anyone can shed any light here, we have a Terminal Server that we are trying to set up with ASR, the person that originally set the TS up created a 1 TB Dynamic disk from the Hyper-V Host before extending the C:\ partition into this unallocated space.

End result is a 1TB C:\

Unfortunately we can't shrink this down whilst the TS is on, we have tried defragmenting and shrinking the disk down but the original image for the TS came from some heavily fragmented Laptop disks which I am led to believe is the cause, due to files that sit at the end of the disk and can't be moved whenever we try to carry out a shrink operation on the disk.


If we try to set up ASR we get an error message on the Azure portal stating that the local C:\ exceeds the 300GB limit.

I'm at a bit of a loss really with what to do next, we have tried defragment, disabling hibernate, shadow copies, pagefile, and we are still unable to shrink the partition due to the above issues.

My next thought was to try using Windows Server Backup to backup the existing C:\ volume, my concern is though that this backup will just back the C:\ as a 1TB partition despite the C:\ only using 270 odd GB of this.

Other thought was to use Storagecraft to backup the TS before conducting a shrink on the partition from Storagecrafts recovery environment although I do believe their technology uses Microsofts inbuilt shrink so we could potentially run into the same issues.

do any of you tech gurus …

I have a Hyper-V server with two VMs.
The physical machine has two NICs and I have configured one for a virtual switch using IP 192.168.1.254
The second NIC has just been connected to the physical switch so now I have two active ethernet connections on my Hyper-V.
What should I do with the second NIC?

Backup software for infrequent non critical image backups

I have several File and Database servers which are all protected by comercial imaging software (Quest) which is fine and works well. So I have no worries from a data backup perspective. Unfortunatly the person that signed the contracts for these blew our entire backup budget on them. I am now looking for a simple cheap (free?) way to backup a few non data servers. These will be print servers and AV servers and such. Config changes are very rare perhaps twice a year so I don't really feel the need to have the latest up to the minute backups of everything. These are 2012 / 16 on HV. I have never been a fan of snapshots but is that the way to go?
