Instant VM Recovery to Hyper-V Incorrectly Doesn't Understand what Server 2019 Datacenter is.

Post by MrMike »

Case #04514997

When attempting to begin an instant VM Recovery to Hyper-V:
  • I select the VM to recover.
  • I select the host (which is a Server 2019 Datacenter with Hyper-V, that I've restored other VMs to).
After pushing next, I'm greeted with:

"[NAMEofVM] can only be restored to Hyper-V 2012 R2 or later host, because it uses UEFI."

Ok... my Server 2019 Datacenter is on UEFI, and my Hyper-V is more than happy to enable UEFI... what is this error REALLY about? Does it simply not understand what Server 2019 Datacenter is? Potentially thinking its older than 2012 R2 by mistake?

Hi Mike,

Let's give a chance to our support team to review your case and come up with a conclusion as our possibility to troubleshoot technical issues over forum posts is quite limited.

Thanks!

For future googlers:

ANSWER: I got it to go past this AFTER choosing "full backup" instead of one of the incremental backups for restoring to a Hyper-V host. For whatever reason, it was quite angry about thinking 2019 wasn't "good enough" whenever I chose the incremental backups vs the full ones.

Thanks for information! Anyway, the described behavior does not seem to be expected as the error message should not be related to the backup type whether it is full or incremental.

Therefore, I would let our support team to investigate the issue and to explain the behavior based on debug logs analysis.

Thanks!
