I have two Hyper-V Server (core) host machines. Both have access to a NAS shared storage where VMs disks are stored. If I create a new VM on host 'A' and, after some time, I need to move it to host 'B', how do I manage it considering:
a) I cannot build a high availability cluster, so no quick migration is possible. b) a) is not possible because I caanot have a 3rd machine to act as a DC.
So, prior to mounting all this scenario, I wanted to know how to do this without the need to copy all data. I mean, is this possible?:
- Switch off VM on host a)
- On host b), create a new VM with the same shared storage
- Swith newly created VM on host b)
This brings some clear problems to me as the loss of virtual NICs IDs, MACs and so on... so, is it possible to clone the VM parameters to host b) prior to migration and keep it there, switched off so at any time I can just swith off a) and restart on b)?.
Thanks in advance,
