    Exporting VM with hyper-v


    When you export a VM with Hyper-v, does the exported VM retain the same hardware identifier as the original?

    I know with VMware, when you open up a backed up VM, you select "I moved it" to retain hardware identifier, and "I copied it" if you want a new identifier. Is it basically the same for Hyper-v?

    :)

    Hyper-V Virtual Machine not recognised

    The folder where your VM is do you see a .vhd file?

    Here is a great article step by step on how to import VM into hyper-v.

    Remote Desktop Connection problem with Virtual Machine

    We made the big mistake of configuring a WINDOWS-10 VM to allow for Remote Desktop Connections. We are unable to disassociate the VM from RDM. We can no longer access the VM!!! The following is the pertinenet
    information:

    • Server is running Windows-10 Professional 64 with Hyper-V installed.
    • VM is Windows-10 Professional 64.
    • In VM allowed Remote Desktop Connections.
    • From server successfully connected to VM via RDM.
    • Closed RDM connection. Unable to access VM.
    • Turned off VM from Hyper-V Manager.
    • Attempted to restart VM, unable to connect via Hyper-V from message box the following is displayed:

      Video Remoting was disconnected. The virtual maching is currently using the Remote X 3D video adapter. A user is currently connected via Remote Desktop Connect to the virtual machine by using Remote Desktop Connection.
    • Connected via Remote Desktop Connection. Attempted to turn off allowing Remote Desktop Connection. VM hung.
    • VM Wouldn't turn off via Hyper-V manager.
    • Shutdown host system and rebooted.
    • Unable to connect via console or RDM.
    • Shutdown host system and rebooted.
    • Deleted VM via Hyper-V Manager.
    • Restored VM system disk from backup prior to RDM usage.
    • Created new VM. the messages in itm 7 above are displayed.
    What can be done to recover? Why does Hyper-V retain a broken connection?

    In Hyper-V it works just like a real machine using Macrium Reflect.

    I understand how to do it - my question is if the backup retains the same virtual hardware id as original when you import the backup.

    If not the backup copy could become deactivated if using digital licences as windows will think it is a new machine. I do not want to use RS1 transfer ability as that only can be done a limited number of times.

    I guess I will just have to experiment.

    I'm not good at explaining some things, that's why we have Kari.
    I understand the stuff and pick it up fast, but to put what I know, into words, is sometimes hard for me.
    @Kari use VM's daily, and has told me to use the export, so if I really screw up, or get infected, ransomed...etc. I have my machine still and the activation.
    Is this what you are asking?
    Or have I misunderstood something?
    Also in the Video thread, Kari has wiped the VM's disk, then clean installed into ´same VM some so the ID and Digital License remains.

    Hi there

    VM's may or may not require re-activation when you move them on to new hardware -- I'm not sure what the criterion is --sometimes you "get lucky" other times you get a prompt -- and then if you are still "lucky" it will activate.

    I suppose it depends on how "para-virtualized" the VM is - and how much the VM is using REAL rather than "Virtualised" hardware.

    I'd just try it and see -- you don't lose activation of your original VM.

    Ms has never been particularly happy with VM's - but It would be really nice to get say an "Individual developers" license where you could get a load of activations while testing stuff - and this should be at an affordable price for individuals and hobbyists - not some mega expensive corporate licensing deal or even an OEM deal - both too expensive for "casual" developers. !!

    Cheers

    Exporting VM with hyper-v

    Seems Hyper-V can behave similar to changing UUID in VMware's .vmx - just needs to be done via WMI.

    Exporting a Hyper-V vm keeps everything, GUID always remains the same, original. It's the importing that determines if old GUID and for instance activation will be kept or not.

    If imported registering vm in-place or restoring vm, GUID is kept (green highlight in screenshot below). If importing copying vm a new GUID will be created (red highlight). See tutorial Method One Step 6 for explanation for these three import methods: Hyper-V Virtual Machine - Import in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
