Unable to migrate VM between Hyper-V Servers


  • So am using this command to vacate our nodes into the other forest: Get-VM | % { Move-VM -DestinationHost host.fqdn -IncludeStorage -DestinationStoragePath "C:\ClusterStorage\Volume12\$($" -verbose }

    I'm not sure, smells like a bug? Or I could have been stuffing something up somewhere.

    destHost: vins0010

    srcHost:   vins011

    Move-VM vins003-seo -DestinationHost vins0010.dest.fqdn -IncludeStorage -DestinationStoragePath "C:\ClusterStorage\Volume1\Hyper-V"

    and got:

    Move-VM : Virtual machine migration operation failed at migration source.
    Failed to create folder.
