Assigning DVD drives to multiple VMs in Hyper-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created two virtual machines through HYPER-V. I can only assign one DVD drive at a time to VM. If i assign DVD drive which is "D:" to both machines then i cant start both virtual machines at the same time. Is there a way to overcome this issue? I want to add DVD drive to Multiple VMs and start both VMs simultaneously. I have W2K8R2 on my Host machine as well as in VMs. Thanks in Advance for your help.

  • I do not think it is possible to assign DVD drive to the multiple VMs that you want to run simultaneously. This is not a supported scenario because of security concern.
