I'm simply wondering if a Server 2012 Hyper-V VM can be sent over the network at startup through PXE boot. No, it cannot. For that matter, you can't do this with any other virtualization technology either. You simply can't "stream" an operating system over a network cable in the way you seem to be envisioning. can anyone suggest another method of ...

The alternative is disk write failures in the guest OS. That often causes them to crash. If you don't want a VM to pause due to low disk space, there are a few things you can do.

My situation involved a physical server which was also an only server, so demotion/promotion would have been painful since all AD accounts would be lost in the process. Fortunately, I found a better/simpler solution that usually works, or at least did for me. Boot into Directory Services Repair Mode (Troubleshoot / Startup Settings / Restart / Directory ...

The File and Printer sharing setting does not disable anything. This is just a Firewall rule to "allow" it. So I suspect on your "DevWeb VM" you have disabled the Firewall. I guess you want to "open" up Filesharing only to be possible from the CI VM to the Web VM, and not to the "outside world". You can do this by specifying apropriate Firewall rules, which ...
