  • Hi,

    You can use –CompatibilityReport parameter to change the vSwitch when migrating. This blog post might help:

    Well, that seems to be rather complicated :(

    EDIT : Could this be used between two Trusted Domains in different Forests?

  • Hi,

    Yes you should be able to use Move-VM cmdled to migrate between different Forests, but I don't think it will work directly cluster to cluster (maybe I'm wrong), you will probably need to remove the VM's from cluster and then migrate (host to host).

    So, cross forest - Move-VM should work from Hyper-V host to Hyper-V host, correct?

    Which kind of permissions does this require on the hosts itself? Do I need to make a Service Account for alle hosts in both domains and assign it special permissions?

  • Correct. You can use Credssp authentication, and run the PowerShell cmdlet from your source Host. You will need an administrator account of your source and destination Hyper-V Host. Use -DestinationCredential parameter to specify credentials for your destination host. I think that is all you need.
