Hyper-v 2012 Failback RRS feed

  • Вопрос

  • Hi

    I have built a Hyper-V Replica LAB with 2 Windows 2012 Hyper-V Hosts in a Workgroup environment and referred the below article to build it.

    http://jsmcomputers.biz/wp/?p=360

    My Servers are

    HV01.domain.local- Primary Server

    HV02.domain.local - Replica Server


    I have successfully tested and performed a "Planned Failover and Failback"  But When I am trying to perform an Unplanned Failover ,I am unable to failback to the Source.

    I used the Powershell command "Complete-VMFailover" on the Replica VM . Thereafter I got lost of correct guide or steps in order to do the below

    - Replicate the changes in the Replica VM back to the Primary VM (which is online now)

    - And resume normal replication process from Primary --> Replica

    Can anybody provide the exact steps to be followed during the Unplanned Failover and Failback

    Regards

    Muralee

  • An unplanned fail-over means that the original primary host or VM has been lost. You can't replicate the changes back to the original VM (a planned fail-over can keep track of this). You need to create a new replica, meaning letting replication create the VM alll over on the original host. Then initiate a planned fail-over to switch back primary VM to the original server.

  • Hi!

    When you initiate an unplanned fail-over, the replica VM becomes a primary VM and replication is broken. To replicate changes back to the original server, a new replication must be created and configured.

    But would be helpful if you could provide me the steps .

    As I need to do the following.

    -Replicate the changes back to the Primary  Server

    -Bring the Primary as the Source of the Replica
