I have a very limited budget, and little knowledge of this, so please bear with me.
We have a primary, and backup Hyper-V server. Replication is running from the primary to the secondary. I need to failover one of the VMs on Primary to secondary without interrupting the services provided by that VM.
This VM is a webserver, with a public website.
No data changes are written in this VM's storage - There is another VM where the databases are hosted. The webserver VM needs to restart after windows updates, while the Secondary Hyper-V runs the most recent replication image.
After the VM has restarted on Primary, the VM on Primary should again be the active one, and then the WindowsUpdates Replicated down to the (dormant again) Secondary Hyper-V.
So in short - Having 2 Hyper-V servers (not clustered - no Active Directory), How to I get a VM to run on the secondary (without downtime of the service provided), and reboot the VM on primary, and switch all users' sessions back to the VM on primary?
