i'm testing a recovery at my job of a VM in Windows 2008 server with Hyper-V.
what to know:
That server called "vm_server" for further reference, got 3 VM running 24/7 on it.
One is for Active directory, one is for IIS and the other one is for SQL server.
I'm using Acronis for the backup, and to test it I made a backup of my AD server while beeing remotely connected to it with the Acronis agent(I already tested it before on windows xp and 7, but it's the first test on a server). I create a new vm with Hyper-V on an other disk because of lack in vm_server space, I start my vm and boot with my acronis disk, and do the recovery.
When the recovery is done and I try to start my test server I get the error "windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause."
Does this happen because I created my vm on a different hard drive? Because my backup is link with his own VM with sid?
My vm that i created is the sma ein the settings, but maybe in the backgroud it's different and that may cause the problem?
Thanks in advance for your time and help.
