Gives me a headache.
I have a ton of differential discs. In order to move the machiens around - and because (Thank heaven) vm move does NOT copy the sources of differential discs (sadly export does), my idea is to have a central copy of all the Masters on every Hyper-V computer.
Example: VM X has a vhdx named "System.vhdx" and that is differential from ...\masters\x64-2012std.vhdx"
To standardize the paths of the differential discs, I would like them to be in c:\Hyper-V\Masters....
Now, C does not always have enough space, so my idea was that \Masters\ in there is a junction to the real path.
PowerShell set-vhd ......\system.vhdx -ParentPath c:\Hyper-V\Master.....goeson.vhdx
works, the VM starts, BUT...
leaves me do see that the vhdx is directly linked to the file - somehow Hyper-V found it nice to RESOLVE the junction and replace it with the "real" path of the file.
Which totally breaks when I move the VM to another host that has a diffrent disc layout (and we have currently planned 3 ones).
Now, is there any way to work around that? I would like the ParentPath to be the ParentPath AS I HAVE SET IT, not something changed, or to get an error.
