Moving VM's from Hyper-V Win10 V8.2 to WIN2016 having problems


  • We have the problem, that some of our development machines use a WIN10 (1803) Hyper-V situation to run VM's.
    (as easy as it is to develop on your local WIN10 development machine)

    After development we want (have) to move the ready VM's to a WIN2016 (1607 up to date) Hyper-V environment for professional management and control.

    But exporting from the WIN10 enviroment (export is succeeding) and restoring is not possible

    Creating a new server on the WIN2016 and using the VHDX of the export, gives the result of 'no boot failure' and a not starting VM.
    Copying the Original VHD or VHDX gives the same result!

    What to do?

  • Hello, 

    You can specify configuration version with PowerShell, when creating a new Virtual Machine on your Windows 10 client. 

    New-VM -Name VMName -Version 8.0

    You will be able to import 8.0 VM versions on your Windows Server 2016. 

    If you would like to use VM's with configuration version 8.2 you need to deploy Windows Server version 1709.  Windows Server version 1709 runs only in Server Core mode. 

    Hope this helps.
