Want to generate crash dump for the hung VM on my Hyper-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • Not sure if this is the right forum. 

    My VM(2k12R2 server) is hung. I am using windows server 2012 Hyper-V as a host. Now I need to generate the crash dump at this moment for analysis. 

    This Link is explaining the way to crash the VM using livekd. But I am getting following errror

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Debuggers\x64>livekd.exe -hv MyVMName

    LiveKd v5.62 - Execute kd/windbg on a live system

    Error resolving symbol KdVersionBlock: 126
    Failed to resolve KdVersionBlock - 126
    Failed to load guest symbols - 126
    Failed to prepare hypervisor session for debugger - error 126.

    Exiting LiveKd.

    Could somebody help me with this?

  • The easiest way to force crash on a VM is through powershell on the Host:

    Debug-VM -Name "VM Name" -InjectNonMaskableInterrupt -ComputerName Hostname

    However ensure that you have following registry keys set on the guest before you run that command:
