  • Hello all...

    Someone on the Hyper-V networking team might want to change this error message...…  I didn't bother looking, but I'm sure that I don't need to insert the disk into the drive and close the door.... :)

  • What were you doing when the above error message occurred?  Did you issue a specific command?  Attempt a specific action?

  • Hi Tim....

    This is taking place when the VM is being turned on or being migrated to a different host.  (The name of the VM is arbitrary… it is showing on all VMs when they boot up.)

    O/S:  Windows Server 2019 Core.

    I'm not looking for a solution..... I'm simply amused by the message. :)

  • What is the configuration of the VM?  Is it trying to use a physical DVD on the host?  That could generate an error something like this.

  • I don't think there is anything special with the Hyper-V configuration.  There are definitely no DVD drives on the physical servers.  The only part worth mentioning is the network teaming which uses 4 physical NICs.
