Restored Hyper-V server won't start, failing to initialize RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was doing some DR testing today so built a new Hyper-V server, 2008 r2 sp1. I restored 4 Hyper-V servers from Data Protection Manager 2010. All looked good, they all showed up in Hyper-V manager and thought I was done.

    When I tried to start the server I got 'vplcoa' could not initialize. What did I miss?

    Best wishes

  • Hi,

    I managed to the get the servers to start after finding this KB article.

    I had already given the restored Hyper-V server a new NIC, but I hadn't deleted the saved state.

    I started the server, it would change from off to saved. I then deleted the saved state, but right clicking on the server. It would then start fine.

    Best wishes

  • Is this the whole message you get?

    Are you able to look into the VHD when you attach it to another VM?


    Just a guy who thanks Bill for paying his bills! :-)
