Moving VHD to new stroage failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, guys.

    I have very interesting problem with one of project we are doing.

    We have old storage -IBM and new one Reduxio ,

    While we are trying to move VHDX machines to Reduxio it moves successfully, while we try to move VHD machines it fails we the following error:

    En error occurred while moving the virtual machine

    Migration did not succeed. Failed to update VHD('C:\ClusterStorage\Volume5\Test\New Virtual Hard Disk.vhd') link in the configuration: 'Incorrect function.'('0x80070001').

    the workaround I have found it's to convert them to VHDX but it takes too much time..

    Have you ever seen this error.

  • Hi, Just let you know that we have finger out, 

    We have created a new Volume in our storage with 4K Block size, which makes us all these troubles. 

    Apparently, There is limit in Windows Server 2012R2 with VHD which can be used only on 512 Block size, therefore I didn't have any problem moving VHDX to the new storage.

    It's was so frustrating. but good to know this.
