Hyper V, HyperV Replica Planned Failover and 3080 could not create or access saved state file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey!

    I have two Hyper V Windows 2012 Hosts, on the first host a running 3 virtual machines.
    for all the 3 guests hyperV replica is activated to the second machine.

    I try to do a planned failover, which didn't work (it stopped in the last step with the following message:)

    'xxxxxxx' could not initialize. (Virtual machine ID D0DE6F58-101F-4F45-94A8-1AF19E4A7F1B)

    'xxxxxxx' could not create or access saved state file D:\HyperV\Hyper-V Replica\Virtual Machines\D0DE6F58-101F-4F45-94A8-1AF19E4A7F1B\D0DE6F58-101F-4F45-94A8-1AF19E4A7F1B.vsv. (Virtual machine ID D0DE6F58-101F-4F45-94A8-1AF19E4A7F1B)

    The same message appears when i try start it manually on the second server

  • Back in the time Hyper-V replica was used in our environment (instead of, Veeam Backup and Replication that is being leveraged nowadays) there were some similar issues with us being unable to poweron certain VMs and the following topic helped us a lot:

    Might be worth taking a look.
