Hyper-V Windows Server 2012 Error:Virtual port creation failed with a NPIV error


  • I have Windows Server 2012 and VM on Hyper-V. After I restart my VM, I receive error like on pictures below.

    I found solution to make a reboot server and solution for remove inactive FC virtual port.

    But this is workaround, I want to know what is reason for this? Maybe wrong configured FC or need for new driver or something else?

  • Hi Sir,

    I found the similar issue within following thread:

    Please check the second reply of Forch :

    If it is the case , I'd suggest you try to update the firmware/driver for HBA .

    Also , you may involve hardware vendor to check this behavior .

    Best Regards,
