Different versions of vmms.exe How to update? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I have 3 HP Servers G9, all with the same configuration and same processor: Inter(R) Xenon(R) CPU E5-2637 v4@ 3.50GHz all 3 installed with the same Windows 2012 R2 DataCenter and added in a failover cluster. Windows updates are up to date on all.

    The problem is that on 2 or them (02 and 03) the version of vmms.exe is 6.3.9600.18895 and on the 01 the version is: 6.3.9600.18841

    I use on the 3 host Hyper V, and when trying to migrate a machine from 02 or 03 to 01 I get an error:

    "Cluster resource 'Virtual Machine TEST-MOVE' of type 'Virtual Machine' in clustered role 'TEST-MOVE' failed. The error code was '0xc0370029' ('Cannot restore this virtual machine to the saved state because of hypervisor incompatibility. Delete the saved state data and then try to start the virtual machine.')."

    The problem is not the CPU version but from what I saw the only difference is vmms.exe version. It works if I enable "Migrate to a physical computer with different processor version" but I cant do on all VM's as they are in production.

    Any help on how can I update the vmms version?
