Hyper V stuck on Stopping

    Question

  • Hyper V installed on Server 2012 Standard, which is a DC and does not have RRAS installed.

    Every time I restart the VM, is does not go past Stopping.

    I have tried killing the process, but I get an Access Denied error.

    I am force to keep restarting the server, which is now making me really uncomfortable.

    Assistance please.

    Also it is not recommended to have active directory roles installed along side hyper-v. Host should have hyper-v role and better to install active directory domain services on a guest.

    Every time I restart the VM,

    Not sure of what your configuration is.  If you have DC and Hyper-V installed on the physical host, then I agree with Dave.  Not recommended.  In fact, it has been known to create problems, so it is really more than a recommendation.  But then you say "every time I restart the VM" but you do not say what VM.  Is the VM the DC?  Any VM on the Hyper-V host? 

    If you do have Hyper-V and DC deployed on the same physical instance, the first thing to do would be to separate them.
