Hyper-V failover fails for some virtual machines on replica server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a simple setup for Hyper-V replication. Primary server is "Server1" and replication server is "Server2". Four VMs are replication to Server 2, the replication is successful, the machine are replicating and changes are updates in the replica server.

    My issue is that two of these VMs fails when executing a failover or test failover with the error: "Hyper-V failed to enable test failover for 'VM1'. The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002). (Virtual Machine ID....)" "Replication operation for virtual machine'VM1' failed: The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002)....."

    The two VMs replicas that fail were created the same way as the other two that work without problems. One thing i noticed is that when the replica is created for "VM1" there is always an error event related to Hyper-V-VMM: "Failed to load Hyper-V state for virtual machine 'VM1' from the configuration: The device is not ready. (0x80070015).(Virtual machine ID ....). Hyper-V may not work properly. An attempt to reload the configuration will be made in a few minutes."

    Have anyone faced this issue before?
