I have two stand alone Hyper-V hosts (Server 2012 R2) with Veeam Replication (v8) from Host A to Host B.
Recently I needed to permanently fail-over one of my guests from Host A (Production) to Host B (DR) - I did this successfully and made an exclusion for that guest in my Replication Job.
Everything seems to be running fine, but I have just noticed that every time my replication job runs, there is a Hyper-V-VMMS error reported in Event Viewer on Host B (Event ID 12240). Error is as follows:
'': Attachment 'D:\Hyper-V\41a0de11c1c1488ebba441326fdce1cf\Ide0-0\<GUEST NAME>_7D9E68A9-2775-4C8D-A958-4CC5D0E7CF26.avhd' not found. Error: 'The system cannot find the file specified.' (0x80070002). (Virtual machine ID )
The Guest this error references is the guest that I permanently failed-over.
This error is immediately followed by another error (Event ID 15268). "Failed to get the disk information."
I see that the Hyper-V-VMMS is looking for a .avhd file that does not exist. Normally I see these .avhd snapshot files present for all my replicas that are in a ready state, so it would seem that Hyper-V and/or Veeam still thinks that the guest I failed-over is still in a replica state.
Any idea what might be going on here? I'd like to try recreating the replication job to see if that stop the error from being reported, but I thought I'd check here first.
