Hi,
i use B&R 6.5 with windows server 2012.
i've replicated 2 windows server 2012.
the replication works good.i start the replication vm from within the hyperv manager to check that windows is ok and it is looks good,i shutdown the machine.when i try to start it again windows is not loading,i get inaccessible_boot_device error.
is it supported scenario to start th replication vm from within hyper v? if so what is the problem because it happen to both replicated VM.

You can do that, but you must create a snapshot on the VM before you start it for testing, and then revert the VM back to the original state (pre-snapshot) once you are done with your testing.

do u have a step by step guide on how to do this replication test from within hyperv and not with the veem failover?
how i revert back to the original state of the replica dr and when i do with the snapshot that i created?

In fact, the replica testing procedure includes just steps mentioned by Anton.

how i revert back to the original state of the replica dr and when i do with the snapshot that i created?

“Apply” operation allows you to return to the pre-snapshot state, meanwhile, all the changes made are discarded.

Based on your original post, it seems that the described process has worked for you previously – has anything changed since then? Thanks.

Also, have you considered updating to version 7 that provides you with the ability to automatically test replica VMs via Surebackup jobs? Thanks.

I must have confused two product versions. VMWare and Hyper-V one. Currently, there is no SureReplica for Hyper-V. Again, sorry for confusion.
