Import Virtual Machine issue RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Glad this forum popped up!

     

    I previously installed Windows 2008 RC1 and then applied KB989353 (or whatever the beta link was for Windows Virtualization). I was able to migrate a Windows 2003 32-bit virtual machine by creating a new virtual machine and attaching my template virtual hard disk. It worked but was a tad slow and sometimes brought my system to a crawl. I ended up stopping the service and returning to Virtual Server 2005 SP1.

     

    Well I just installed the Windows 2008 RC1 with Hyper-V iso with hopes of some improvement from the previous build. Im still very hopeful. But I noticed an error, possible operator-oriented. Here's what happens:

     

    Pre-conditions: Copied my Windows 2003 32-bit virtual machine folder to a new folder named "E:\Virtual Machines\Windows 2003 R2 SP2 - Web - HyperV".

    1. Open Server Manager

    2. Select Roles > Hyper-V > Microsoft Hyper-V Servers > MYMACHINE

    3. Click the Import Virtual Machine... action

    4. Select the "E:\Virtual Machines\Windows 2003 R2 SP2 - Web - HyperV" folder

    5. Click Import

    6a. Expected the virtual machine to be imported successfully

    6b. Actually received this message:

    Code Block

    A server error occurred while attempting to import the virtual machine.

     

    Importing the computer system from file 'E:\Virtual Machines\Windows 2003 R2 SP2 - Web - HyperV\' failed.

     

    The operation was passed an invalid parameter.

     

     

    Post-conditions: A new virtual machine with the name "Windows 2003 R2 SP2 - Web - HyperV" created.

     

    I'm about to create a new virtual machine and attach the virtual disk to it like I did in the previous build.  But I thought it may be important to let you know.

     

    I'm providing a dxdiag 32-bit dump of my machine (trimmed to fit the 50k character thread limit):

    Deriven,

     

    I would look in the future to posting Tech questions on the Hyper-V TechNet Forum as this is the MSDN Forum (More for Software Developers to write software to use with the Hyper-V API's etc)

     

    Before you import the VM I would suggest starting the VM is VS2005R2SP1 and removing the additions and then try doing an import of the VM and go from there.

     

    Cheers,

     

    Stephen Edgar

  • 'Import' only supports importing virtual machines that have been exported from another Hyper-V server.

     

    Cheers,
